Seeing Through Places: Reflections on Geography and Identity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Gordon, bestselling author of Spending and The Shadow Man, investigates the role that place plays in the formation of identity — the connections between how we experience place and how we become ourselves. From her grandmother's house, which stood at the center of her childhood life, to a rented house on Cape Cod, where she began to mature as a writer, Mary Gordon navigates the reader through these spaces and worlds with subtlety and style. Wise, humorous, and intelligent, Seeing Through Places illuminates the relationship between the physical, emotional, and intellectual architectures of our lives, showing us the far-reaching power that places ultimately have in influencing a life.
