GENERAL BOOKS ON
in a favorite overstuffed chair or maybe in bed or beneath a park tree, a gifted author
carries you into his or her secret realm and explores one tiny aspect of nature. An
ecology of the mind is created, populated with fantastic (but possibly very common) plants
and animals. You see things from the worm's point of view, from beneath the leaf, from sky
high through the glint of a hawk's eye, from inside a cloud of drifting magnolia-blossom
perfume. And this feels good in several different ways.
