Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Loss and recovery, isolation and connectedness are themes running through this powerful, idiosyncratic collection of naturalisticper web essays....Without sentimentality, she moves between external conditions and internal, comparing her recovery from a lengthy illness to spring, or seeing in the diversity among bear dens an early order of the impulse to individuate ('Architecture')....Ehrlich's prose, while sometimes tangled in extravagant philosophical leaps, nevertheless yields provocative images, like that of a line of tree shadows frost-white against a warmed, darkened field. She is best when descriptive, her sharp eye cast unblinking both within and without." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Her thoughtful, poetic language is a pleasure to read. Recommended for general literature collections." Mary Margaret Benson, Library Journal
