In recognition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning authora€™s long and lauded career as a master essayist, a landmark collection, including her most beloved pieces and some rarely seen work, rigorously curated by the author herself. a€œA writer who never seems tired, who has never plodded her way through a page or sentence, Dillard can only be enjoyed by a wide-awake reader, a€ warns Geoff Dyer in his introduction to this stellar collection. Carefully culled from her past work, The Abundance is quintessential Annie Dillard, delivered in her fierce and undeniably singular voice, filled with fascinating detail and metaphysical fact. The pieces within will exhilarate both admiring fans and a new generation of readers, having been a€œre-framed and re-hung, a€ with fresh editing and reordering by the author, to situate these now seminal works within her larger canon. The Abundance reminds us that Dillarda€™s brand of a€œnovelized nonfictiona€ pioneered the form long before it came to be widely appreciated. Intense, vivid, and fearless, her work endows the true and seemingly ordinary aspects of lifea€”a commuter chases snowball-throwing children through neighborhood streets, a teenager memorizes Rimbauda€™s poetrya€”with beauty and irony, inviting readers onto sweeping landscapes, to join her in exploring the complexities of time and death, with a sense of humor: on one page, an eagle falls from the sky with a weasel attached to its throat; on another, a man walks into a bar. Reminding us of the indelible contributions of this formative figure in contemporary nonfiction, The Abundance exquisitely showcases Annie Dillarda€™s enigmatic, enduring genius, as Dillard herself wishes it to be marked.In recognition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning authora€™s long and lauded career as a master essayist, a landmark collection, including her most beloved pieces and some rarely seen work, rigorously curated by the author herself. a€œA writer ...
