Praise

Praise for A Field Guide to Getting Lost:

“Solnit has been compared to both Annie Dillard and Susan Sontag . . . her own work resembles a richly conceived character, capable of sudden turns and sharp twists, changing direction from book to book and page to page in ways that, in retrospect, are nevertheless consistent with what she’s done before. [A Field Guide to Getting Lost] has something close to perfect pitch, an intermezzo in an increasingly impressive career.” 
The Nation

“An altogether sublime collection. . . she sees in the act of embracing the unknown a gateway to self-transcendence.”
—Maria Popova, Brainpickings.org

“This indespensable California writer’s most personal book yet, alive as ever to the subtle nuances of the natural world, but newly responsive to the promptings of her own heart and history.”
—San Fransisco Chronicle

“This meditation on the pleasures and terrors of getting lost is . . . a series of peregrinations, leading the reader to unexpected vistas.”
—The New Yorker

“An ode to losing yourself and finding out what’s on the other side of familiarity. For Ms. Solnit . . . getting lost is more than a matter of merely physical circumstances. It’s a state of mind to be embraced and explored, a gateway to discovering more about yourself in relation to the rest of the world.”
—The Dallas Morning News
