Product Details

Praise

“In her famously lyrical prose, Solnit writes about her own life, her family, and her reading, and she revisits the myths and ideas from art and history that have shaped her world.”
–The New Yorker

“What Solnit offers us, I think, is the future of memoir. Not the story of the self . . . but the ways in which one’s story opens into other stories . . . literary nonfiction doesn’t get more beautiful and compelling.”
–The American Scholar

“A beautiful and profound book of essayistic reflection on memory, family, grief, travel, and storytelling.”
–The Millions

“The product of a remarkable mind at work, one able to weave a magnificent number of threads into a single story, demonstrating how all our stroies are interconnected.”
–Bookforum  

“[A] brilliant, genre-refuting book. The power of The Faraway Nearby, as in Solnit’s previous writing, lies in its juxtaposition, its clusters of narrative nerves. . . . Solnit is a wanderer who collapses distance.”
–San Francisco Chronicle
