In sharing her thoughts about the urgent business of being alive, Kingsolver employs the same keen eyes, persuasive tongue, and understanding heart that characterize her acclaimed fiction. Her essays are defiant, funny, and courageously honest.

"There is no one quite like Barbara Kingsolver in contemporary literature." (Washington Post Book World)
This gentle yet thought provoking personal exposition gives Barbara Kingsolver's perspective on the micro and macro of life. If more followed her suggested life mantras the world would be a much better place.
"I love love love her books. I can't wait for a new"
I love that she reads her own work for the Audible books. It's an awesome voice to listen to. And I feel that I'm hearing the voice that is in the story.
I read this book when it was first published; listened to it on audio some years later and then purchased it again on audible. Kingsolver's stories are a blend of subtle humor and a life perspective that is thoughtful and appealing. I will read this again and again.
I always love reading her books & listening to her read her work. I enjoy her descriptions of life's simplicities and revel in her ability to illuminate just how extraordinary these simplicities truly are :-)
She always make you think, that is what i really enjoy about her books, you are always learning.
