What Light Can Do: Essays on Art, Imagination, and the Natural World by Robert Hass
What Light Can Do: Essays on Art, Imagination, and the Natural World

ruth-ida, January 2, 2013

A must read for people interested in expansive thinking and great writing about a variety of subjects...imagine john jeremiah sullivan if he lived in a stone cottage for twenty years. I love this book and look forward to rereading it someday.

An Ermine in Czernopol by Gregor Von Rezzori
An Ermine in Czernopol

ruth-ida, August 4, 2012

I feel a strong trust in the new york review of books anthology and this is no let down.
Von Rezzori has a great light touch with a swirling band of characters starting with philosophizing
children in the ethnographically styled fictional city of Czernopol. I think he is a genius.

The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning by Maggie Nelson
The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning

Maggie Nelson is such a gifted thinker and her writing reflects a distinctive gift to readers: logical, academic, intelligent ideas in a poetic package. My book of the year.

Woolgathering by Patti Smith
Woolgathering

This is a delicious little volume of memories. When I was holding it while reading I had a sense that it was a book of magic.
Of course the Patti Smith fans are deep but this would be a good gift that introduces her to people less familiar.

In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin

ruth-ida, September 20, 2011

This is the once a year book for me that is so good I cherish it instead of reading it all in one weekend. Larson has masterful touches in introducing bits of information and delving back in to the same subject a little later. The subject of an American family in 1930's Berlin is chilling and fascinating because Larson includes the good, bad and the ugly of human behavior. This is a great choice for a gift for any history lover.
