Deprived Of Unhappiness (Hardback)Sam Pickering (author)
- Publisher out of stock
But reading Pickering makes life blossom. Suddenly the small and the neglected bloom and charm. He is opinionated, too. "Foolishness in low places," as a reviewer put it, is also his subject. Critics have compared him to Twain and Montaigne and have said his sentences flow like silk, caught in a breeze of verbs and nouns.
Deprived of Unhappiness is a book that describes living-living within a family and with Everyman's hopes and fears. As the narrator roams hill and field, he tries to make sense of life. Even better, he enjoys life, its big rooms and its small, dusty corners. Pickering breathes life into the weary letters of carpe diem.
