Writing from the Center

Indiana University Press, July 1997. Trade Paperback. Used - Very Good. Item #274239
ISBN: 0253211433

. . . essays of substance and beauty, and they belong beside the work of Annie Dillard, Samuel Pickering, and Wendell Berry. --Library Journal

[Sanders] eloquently expresses his love of the land and the responsibility he feels for preventing further erosion of our natural resources . . . --Publishers Weekly

Skillfully written in a clear, unmannered style refreshingly devoid of irony and hollow cleverness, the author starts with everyday experiences and gleans from them larger truths. --The Christian Science Monitor

[These] essays are so good one is tempted to stand up and applaud after reading them. . . . Sanders is a modern day prospector who finds gems of spiritual meaning in both familiar and unusual places. --Body Mind Spirit

Writing from the Center is about one very fine writer's quest for a meaningful and moral life. Lannan Literary Award winner Scott Sanders (Secrets of the Universe, Staying Put, A Paradise of Bombs) seeks and describes a center that is geographical, emotional, artistic, and spiritual--and is rooted in place. The geography is midwestern, the impulses are universal.

The earth needs fewer tourists and more inhabitants, it seems to me--fewer people who float about in bubbles of money and more people committed to knowing and tending their home ground. --Scott Russell Sanders, from the book
