Read full description of the books:



You have read of all of Annie's books. Some more than once. Still this is a book for you. It is a little heavy but worth lugging around in your briefcase or your backpack. Whoever said beauty comes without effort? So you have the book with you and now you find yourself in a deserted island, or stranded in the Canadian wilderness in the middle of winter, you are safe. When your soul aches there is comfort. As you walk to catch the evening train after another day of struggle, the very weight of the book lightens your step. On the train ride home you open the book at random and, slowly, light filters in. Sometimes you soar and loop the air and land gingerly, as if nothing had happened.You read other books. You have to. Still you carry this book in addition to. You carry it like what? A spare tire?. An extra oxygen tank? A safe wool blanket to throw over your heart when it starts getting cold. It's not just little pieces of remembered joy all bound in one. It's that she selected these writings herself and in so doing created something new. There is also this. You can see an early version of the novel The Living. A work reduced to its essence. Then go back and read the final version. Can you see the flesh and blood that the author thought was needed for the work to live forever? If you want to write, is there a better way to learn? Also, the book lets you see an author's lifetime of works as one work, one long struggle to word the wordless. So structured, images and themes in different books recur and bounce, blend and bifurcate, a symphony, a palette, a Fourth of July firework bursting into a million stars against the dark sky.
