Product Details

Praise

Seeking Rapture is the biography of a hungry heart. . . . Affecting, beautifully crafted autobiographical meditations.”
—The Boston Globe

“Revealing . . . [Harrison] has produced enthralling essays that bring to mind the robust metaphysics of Kathleen Norris and Patricia Hampl. Kathryn Harrison has challenged herself—and won—with her passionate, rigorous thinking on family bonds and family bondage, and the mysterious intersections of body and spirit.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“[A] rich collection . . . Harrison aims, over the distance of time and often with dazzling accuracy, for unflinching display of motivations. . . . Such fastidious recall is a Proustian gift. With all due regard for her achievement as a novelist, Harrison appears Proust-like in another respect: She is her own truest subject, an unending wellspring of emotion and restless quest.”
—Los Angeles Times

“Harrison remains a master of her craft, with musings that are lyrical, insightful, and haunting.”
—Entertainment Weekly

“It’s her fierce devotion to her absent mother that gives this book its shimmering grace.”
Organic Style

“Poignant glimpses into the life of a survivor.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“The prose sings….Harrison [is] at her thoughtful, provocative best, mindful of the flaws and desires within everyone.”
Publishers Weekly
