This collection makes me feel effusive about Reynolds Price, radio, and the short-form essay. I will be using some of these pieces as examples in class of concise brilliance. I love RP's approach the the world and love for apparently everything, his deep reserves of forgiveness and patience. I only hope that when I'm in my sixties I can write--and feel--like this.
Judy
A quite good collection of short personal essays on a variety of subjects read over a period of time on Public Radio.
Colleen
Not even quite stories, almost just thoughts, but they're good and make me want to read more of him.
Lisa
As always, Reynolds has turned out a book beautiful in its language and thoughtfulness.
Ann
