The Abundance

(2016)
A non fiction book by

 
Annie Dillard has spent a lifetime examining the world around her with eyes wide open, drinking in all things intensely and relentlessly. She conjures currents of magic and wisdom, illuminating the seemingly ordinary moments of a life lived fearlessly - as a breathless teenager, as a roving young adult and as a writer - with her unique wit, boundless curiosity and fierce, undeniably singular voice.

Whether observing a sublime lunar eclipse or a moth consumed in a candle flame, the trembling of lily pads on a pond or hundreds of red-winged blackbirds taking flight, Dillard's awe at the fragility of the natural world rejuvenates and inspires pleasure and heartache.

Precise in language and deeply meditative in spirit, this is a landmark collection from one of America's masters. A formative figure in contemporary non-fiction and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, The Abundance showcases Annie Dillard in all her enigmatic genius.
