really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction

This 2012 book of essays is very enjoyable. A compelling range
of interests is explored in fine writing. His bird-watching experience
in China as well as the environmental devastation, book reviews, and
a paean to Alice Munro are a few of the topics covered. I recommend.

Margaret I have a LONG list of books recommended by Patti K. I can't wait to reserve them at the library. Franzen wrote a complimentary blog for the'baseball' book called The Art of Fielding. Among other things it is a deep study of the results of perfectionism.
