Staff Reviews


Annie Dilliard is my favorite--and, indeed--I would maintain--our greatest living American author.  She lives up to all the hype.  Though her body of work is not voluminous.  When I want to encourage a reader to dive into her work, I usually recommend that they begin here--with this magnificent collection of essays.  This is the perfect Annie Dillard sampler.  This will give you an excellent introduction to the author.  

— From James
