Indescribable—except to mention the author’s position as professor of religion at Columbia, and that it contains some of the finest prose and photography you’ll find anywhere—consequently, we will now commit the unpardonable sin of stealing a line from the publisher’s press materials: “This timely meditation gives pause in the midst of harried lives and turns attention toward what we usually overlook: night, silence, touch, grace, ghosts, water, earth, stones, bones, idleness, infinity, slowness, and contentment.”
A weird, wonderful, wallop-packing work of untethered spirituality.
