For the Time Being by Annie Dillard
For the Time Being

Stella, September 16, 2007

Annie Dillard intertwines spiritual traditions, glimpses of birth and death, observations of clouds, the life of a famous monk/paleontologist and other seemingly unconnected images in a moving and poetic statement. As she moves between her chosen themes, a glowing portrait of humanity develops. A book which strikes each reader differently, and can be re-read again and again.
