I really shouldn't read essays. I love the way this lady writes. 8 years later, I can still hear the tap dancing of the javelinas on the air ducts. (the story of building her home in AZ amidst the wildlife is wonderful) Unfortunately, I DON'T agree with her political opinions and solutions, both of which she spewed freely throughout the book (OK, just one essay but that was enough for me). I can't fault her for expressing them- this IS a book of essays, after all. But the problem is... they put me off ever reading another word of hers. I have tried to read her fiction but my brain simply will not allow my hand to close over one of them. Sad.

Damned politics.
