When it comes to make believe, less really is more. In the United States, this

In The Case for Make Believe, Harvard child psychologist Susan Linn tells the alarming story of childhood under siege in a commercialized and technology-saturated world. Although play is essential to human development and children are born with an innate capacity for make believe, Linn argues that, in modern-day America, nurturing creative play is not only countercultural—it threatens corporate profits. A book with immediate relevance for parents and educators alike, The Case for Make Believe helps readers understand how crucial child’s play is—and what parents and educators can do to protect it. At the heart of the book are stories of children at home, in school, and at a therapist’s office playing about real-life issues from entering kindergarten to a sibling’s death, expressing feelings they can’t express directly, and making meaning of an often confusing world. In an era when toys come from television and media companies sell videos as brain-builders for babies, Linn lays out the inextricable links between play, creativity, and health, showing us how and why to preserve the space for make believe that children need to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives.

Make Believe

When the case is suddenly re-opened, Natasha is forced to make a decision. Reality or imagination? Make believe or truth? Or can she-as she's been doing for the past five years--go on existing someplace in between?

Natasha Lisenko is twenty-two years old. She's clever, creative, and hasn't left the house in five years. Her sister, Lena, is an energetic, popular, occasionally cruel high-school cheerleader--or was, the last time Natasha saw her. One day, after a fight at school, the sisters took separate routes home-and the mystery of Lena's disappearance has haunted the family ever since. Natasha works her way through delayed adolescence, college applications, and an evolving relationship with her tutor. Her parents work to move forward without their daughter, and without answers to the questions surrounding what happened that afternoon. When the case is suddenly re-opened, Natasha is forced to make a decision. Reality or imagination? Make believe or truth? Or can she-as she's been doing for the past five years--go on existing someplace in between?

Magic, Monsters, and Make-Believe Heroes looks at fantasy film, television, and participative culture as evidence of our ongoing need for a mythic vision—for stories larger than ourselves into which we write ourselves and through which we can become the heroes of our own story. Why do we tell and retell the same stories over and over when we know they can’t possibly be true? Contrary to popular belief, it’s not because pop culture has run out of good ideas. Rather, it is precisely because these stories are so fantastic, some resonating so deeply that we elevate them to the status of religion. Illuminating everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Dungeons and Dragons, and from Drunken Master to Mad Max, Douglas E. Cowan offers a modern manifesto for why and how mythology remains a vital force today.

Real Likenesses presents a radical new approach to artistic representation. At its heart is a serious reconsideration of the relationship between medium and content in representational art, which counters current dominant theories that make attention to the former inevitably a distraction from attending to the latter. Through close analysis of paintings, photographs, and novels, Michael Morris proposes a new understanding of the real likenesses we encounter in representational art; what they are, how they are made present to us, and how they are created. The result is an intuitive way of thinking about how these art forms work.

This story of a stay-at-home mother’s misadventures is “a fun read that ‘imperfect mums’ everywhere will adore” (The Sun). While her husband Matt’s career takes off, Marnie Martin is left with the task of pairing socks and locating Lego. His late nights at the office are turning into late nights who knows where else, and they haven’t had a proper conversation in weeks, sex in months, or a full night’s sleep in years. Marnie’s journalism career has morphed into writing a food column. But even that turns into disaster when Marnie gets distracted by a daydream about her movie-star crush, Maddox Wolfe—which leads to a missed deadline and a case of food poisoning. There’s only one option left for Marnie: blogging. As the anonymous “Mrs Make Believe,” Marnie starts spilling secrets and becomes the voice of messed-up mothers everywhere. But she never could have imagined that her celebrity daydream would walk off the screen and into her reality, turning her already muddled world totally on its head . . . This “compulsively readable and entertaining” novel (Daily Mail) is “a funny, sexy, clever book which brilliantly reflects the chaos of motherhood and marriage” (Alison McGarragh-Murphy, editor of The Motherload). “Funny . . . fabulously fresh and achingly honest . . . I couldn’t put it down.” —Alex Brown, #1 bestselling author of The Secret of Orchard Cottage
