The world isn’t coming to an end, contrary to what you may have heard. But the media’s near-exclusive focus on conflict and disaster means that the progress and everyday acts of brilliance taking place across the globe go unnoticed. Jurriaan Kamp shows that optimism—intelligent optimism, not a rose-colored-glasses brand of wishful thinking—is good for not only your mind but your body too. He details a whole host of health problems that can actually be linked to pessimism. Moreover, there is good reason for optimism: Kamp proves that on the whole we’re living longer, becoming smarter, working less, and growing richer. Not only that, democracy is on the rise, and violence is declining. This book will help you tune out the media’s focus on sensationalism and negativity and turn on your natural optimism so you’ll drop into a “real world” that’s richer than you ever imagined.

The literary contents of Something to Live For’s 122 pages consist of a variety of works by a single author that includes poems, short stories, and a small bio. Positioned towards the middle of the book are the meaningful twenty-one poems with several of them having the ability to touch any reader’s heart. Starting off is the poem, Remember Me?, a simple dedication to LaTasha Harlins, a young African-American teen killed during the post-L.A. riots of the early 90’s; another memorable poem would be, The Rent is Too Damn High, the humorous poetic play on the phrase by Jimmy McMillan III, the political activist and Vietnam War veteran in Brooklyn, New York. The short stories have the same purpose as the poems, and that is to entertain, enlighten, and provoke thought but they are longer! Beginning after the bio and completing the end of the book are the ‘meat and potatoes’, the eighteen imagination capturing short stories that are quite moving at times and are sure to stay in one’s mind. Each story has its own character overcoming circumstances and situations to prevail and inspire. LaTasha’s Song is another dedication to the slain Ms. Harlins of Los Angeles, it shows the family struggle of a teen girl with the ability to sing and trying to keep herself together along with school and family life through music; in Baby Girl, another inspiring story of a teen girl dealing with having a baby and getting married at an early age; and with Lawson’s Rule, there is the tale of an African-American governor taking matters into her own hands after her city explodes into violence during her election term. Overall, Something to Live For is an exceptional work of fiction that has the capability to become a classic over time and there is the possibility of several short stories having the potential to be transformed into novels by themselves or into short films if scripted properly.

DescriptionThis is the first half of Simpson's two part collection. The poems are often shocking and always sincere, but whilst many painful experiences and emotions are explored, there is often a sense of hope and a faith in human relations expressed in the words. In the midst of this seriousness and hurt Simpson finds room for humour, both subtle and subversive and explicit and light. About the AuthorSimpson describes herself as being born into a catholic, middleclass family, in Middlesex. Since that day she has experienced huge suffering but also shown great courage and resilience. She is very frank about the way in which relations have let her down but is also aware of the difficulties she experienced as part of married life and motherhood. Today she is happily married and lives by the sea.
