Confessions of a Tarot Reader Practical Advice from This Realm and Beyond (Paperback)
|Author: Jane Stern|
From the Publisher:
Tarot cards have been used to foretell the future for centuries. Once the domain of the esoteric and mystical, tarot today has many practical applications in the modern world. Jane Stern, a fourth generation tarot reader, has given the art of the tarot a very modern spin. Using the twenty-two major arcana cards (the “heart of the tarot”) as chapters, she has gleaned all she has learned over the years and presents Confessions of a Tarot Reader as a witty, readable, and useful self-help book. In her own words, the author likes to think of herself as a “psychic Dear Abby,” and by drawing on the wisdom of the tarot deck, to give practical advice in every life situation and lift the veil between this world and the unseen beyond.
Jane and Michael Stern have devoted themselves to seeking out fabulous food in such unlikely spots as The Cherry Hut in Beulah, Michigan, and the Penn Drug Company in Sydney, Iowa. Their first book was ROAD FOOD, in 1976, a guide to diners and greasy spoons; they are also the authors of EAT YOUR WAY ACROSS THE U.S.A., CHILI NATION, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BAD TASTE, and several other cookbooks, restaurant guides, and appreciations of pop culture. Funny, unorthodox, and appealingly devoted to each other (and to offbeat food discoveries), the Sterns have revolutionized food writing in America.
