Books like this, that address the sources of creation and the sources of our humanness, come along once in a decade. -Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times

“This small book is as wise, sensitive, intense, and affecting as anything I have read in recent years.” -Doris Grumbach, author of Fifty Days of Solitude

“A gem.” -Library Journal

“Mark Doty’s prose is insistently exploratory, yet every aside, every detour, turns into pertinence, and it all seems effortless, as though the author were wondering, and marveling, aloud.” -Bernard Cooper, author of Truth Serum

“A dazzling accomplishment, its radiance bred of lucid attention and acute insight. The subject is the profoundly personal act of perception translated into description. Doty succeeds in rendering this most contemplative of arts-the still life-into a riveting drama.” -Patricia Hampl, author of I Could Tell You Stories
