Accidental Gravity

Residents, Travelers, and the Landscape of Memory

2017 INDIES Winner
Honorable Mention, Essays (Adult Nonfiction)

Accidental Gravity negotiates the difficult edge between a naive belief in an enduring, unassailable natural world and the equally naive belief that human life takes place in some unnatural, more mediated context. The title refers to the accidental but nonetheless meaningful nexus where the personal meets and combines with the universal—those serendipitous moments when the individual life connects to the larger rhythms of time and planet.
