The War in the Country: How the Fight to Save Rural Life Will Shape Our Future by Thomas F. Pawlick.
Pandora's Seed: The Unforeseen Cost of Civilization by Spencer Wells.
These two books were ordered by H, who is a big reader just like me. He heard interviews with the authors on CBC radio. Much of the nonfiction that comes into this house is thanks to this.
As well, many of the writers I hang around in life and online are those who share what they're reading. The rest of the books in the pile are here because of this.
The Art of the Personal Essay: An Anthology from the Classical Era to the Present selected and with an introduction by Phillip Lopate. I ordered this thanks to Ian.
Hiddenness, Uncertainty, Surprise: Three Generative Energies of Poetry by Jane Hirshfield. Thanks to this post on Capacious Hold-All.
My Life as a Dame: The Personal and the Political in the Writings of Christina McCall edited by Stephen Clarkson, foreword by Eleanor Wachtel. Thanks to this post on Matilda Magtree.
The Martyrology: Books 3 & 4 by bpNichol. This is thanks to Gerry following a previous post here. But I have to give this one back.
Yes! I just came across another must-have book over on That Shakespearean Rag.
