CLANCY SIGAL

1926–2017

From Hemingway Lives!: Why Reading Ernest Hemingway Matters Today by Clancy Sigal:

“There is no Last Word on Hemingway, no received wisdom you can trust, just what he wrote down and how you feel about it. … But even now, a full century after he wrote his first school poem, scratched out in startlingly plain words on onion skin paper with a number two pencil, his heart and soul remain as fresh and brave as ever.”


"A gem of a book" — that's how the NYT describes "Animal Talk" in its collection of "Board Books to Get Babies Talking."


Speaking of animal sounds, this gem of a book offers a chance to say them with a little one in both English and Spanish — and marvel at how differently languages interpret the same noises. “Frogs say RIBBIT RIBBIT. Can you?” one side of the spread says, while the other is “Las ranas dicen CRUA CRUA. Puedes tu?” As for the animals, they are photos of small painted wooden Oaxacan sculptures that are somehow both stunning and adorable, set against brightly painted backgrounds.
