Praise

“Solnit is an elegant essayist . . . [she] joyfully trespasses across disciplines and genres, tracing a path through philosophy, paleontology, politics, religion, and literary criticism.”
–The New York Times

“A tour de force . . . Solnit, a writer of unflagging grace, has a remarkable ability to wrest meaning from the mundane.”
–San Francisco Chronicle
