Cinderella Sweeping Up (Paperback)
Life is a moving, changing thing which insists we be flexible. Thankfully, we are given endless opportunities to grow and move forward when old opinions, attitudes and ambitions no longer suit who we are today. A rich and abundant history of intellectuals and artists have paved the way for us to make the most out of this time on earth. With Cinderella Sweeping Up, Erin Chandler combines her own hard-earned life lessons with those of our histories most influential thinkers. Whether it be Albert Camus, a French philosopher in the 1950s, Buster Keaton, the Vaudevillian genius from the 1920s, Hunter S. Thompson in 1995, Oscar Wilde in 1880 or Buddhist Monk, Huineng in 680 A.D., we learn from each other what it means to be alive. Each of the seventy essays studies a beautiful or damned circumstance and takes a celebratory look at life.
