Farrar, Straus and Giroux will publish Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness in January 2010.


Ariel Gore isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but they do have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from their feed.
Recent research proves what memoirists already know: Far from re-activating the stress of traumatic or emotional experiences, the process of writing serves as real medicine—even making our physical wounds heal faster.

Seriously. Writers’ BIOPSY WOUNDS heal some fifty percent faster than folks who don’t jot down what they’re going through.

“That kind of thinking [that writers must alleviate their guilt for leading a creative life] is based on the idea that the creative life is somehow self-indulgent. Artists and writers have to understand and live the truth that what we are doing is nourishing the world. William Carlos Williams said, "It is difficult to get the news from poems yet men die miserably every day for lack of what is found there." You can't eat a book, right, but books have saved my life more often than sandwiches. And they've saved your life... But we don't say, oh, Maya Angelou should have silenced herself because other people have other destinies. It's interesting, because artists are always encouraged to feel guilty about their work. Why? Why don't we ask predatory bankers how they alleviate their guilt? ”

“The last introvert in a world of extroverts. Silence: my response to both emptiness and saturation. But silence frightens people. I had to learn how to talk. Out of politeness.”
Ariel Gore, Atlas of the Human Heart

“Your heart is the size of your fist; keep loving, keep fighting.”
Ariel Gore, Atlas of the Human Heart
