In recognition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning authors long and lauded career as a master essayist, a landmark collection, including her most beloved pieces and some rarely seen work, rigorously curated by the author herself.
A writer who never seems tired, who has never plodded her way through a page or sentence, Dillard can only be enjoyed by a wide-awake reader, warns Geoff Dyer in his introduction to this stellar collection. Carefully culled from her past work, The Abundance is quintessential Annie Dillard, delivered in her fierce and undeniably singular voice, filled with fascinating detail and metaphysical fact. The pieces within will exhilarate both admiring fans and a new generation of readers, having been re-framed and re-hung, with fresh editing and reordering by the author, to situate these now seminal works within her larger canon.
The Abundance reminds us that Dillards brand of novelized nonfiction pioneered the form long before it came to be widely appreciated.
Intense, vivid, and fearless, her work endows the true and seemingly ordinary aspects of lifea commuter chases snowball-throwing children through neighborhood streets, a teenager memorizes Rimbauds poetrywith beauty and irony, inviting readers onto sweeping landscapes, to join her in exploring the complexities of time and death, with a sense of humor: on one page, an eagle falls from the sky with a weasel attached to its throat; on another, a man walks into a bar.
Reminding us of the indelible contributions of this formative figure in contemporary nonfiction, The Abundance exquisitely showcases Annie Dillards enigmatic, enduring genius, as Dillard herself wishes it to be marked.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about the remarkable year one woman spent in Virginia s Roanoke Valley now available in a limited Olive Edition.
A remarkable psalm of terror and celebration. Time
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is the story of a dramatic year in Virginia's Roanoke Valley. Annie Dillard sets out to see what she can see. What she sees are astonishing incidents of "beauty tangled in a rapture with violence."
Her personal narrative highlights one year's exploration on foot in the Virginia region through which Tinker Creek runs. In the summer, Dillard stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot; she collects pond water and examines it under a microscope. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays King of the Meadow with a field of grasshoppers. The result is an exhilarating tale of nature and its seasons."

Описание: Feminist research has both held and contested experience as a category of epistemological importance, often as a secular notion. However, spirituality and sacred knowing are also fundamental to a Black/endarkened feminist epistemology in teaching and research, given the historical and cultural experiences of African ascendant women worldwide. How can (re)membering bear witness to our individual and collective spiritual consciousness and generate new questions that inform feminist theory and practice? Learning to (Re)member the Things We’ve Learned to Forget explores that question. Theorizing through sites and journeys across the globe and particularly in Ghana, West Africa, this book explores how spirituality, location, experience, and cultural memory engage and create an endarkened feminist subjectivity that can (re)member, opening possibilities for research and teaching that honors the wisdom, history, and cultural productions of African diasporic women particularly and persons of African heritage generally.

Magnetic Sponsoring is unlike anything you've ever seen or read before when it comes to building a network marketing or MLM business.
This is NOT a book for people who want to follow the herd, or get average results handing out samples, holding home parties, or buying leads. It is for the few who want to become leaders in this industry. Who want to walk across the stage, and who want to earn 7-figures. It is for those who would rather be the hunted than the hunter. Who prefer to work smarter, instead of harder. Who want to build a life-long business, instead of an opportunity, and for those who value truth over hype.
If you're tired of chasing your friends and family members, posting fliers on phone poles, cold calling leads, and handing out business cards, then Magnetic Sponsoring is exactly what you've been looking for.
In this book, I will teach you... - How to get an endless number of prospects to call you, with credit card in hand ready to buy your product, or join your business. - How to create a life-long business with zero competition. - How to make income whether your prospects join your business or not. - How to legitimately produce endless leads for free. - How to create automated marketing systems that sell and recruit for you. - How to sponsor top industry leaders instead of tire-kickers. - How to become an Alpha man or woman that people respect and follow. - How I used these strategies to make over $50 million online, and become the #1 residual income earner in my opportunity.
The Revised and Expanded Edition includes a new forward by Tim Erway, access to BONUS chapters and action guide PDFs, a private online community, an attraction marketing success interview series, and a BRAND NEW interview with me, which will help you apply these powerful marketing strategies in your business as fast as possible.
Thank you for your leadership.
