The Small Heart of Things: Being at Home in a Beckoning World - Association of Writers and Writing Programs Award for Creative Nonfiction (Paperback)Julian Hoffman (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Guided by Rainer Maria Rilke's belief that "everything beckons us to perceive it," Hoffman explores the area around the Prespa Lakes, shared by Greece, Albania, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. From there he travels widely, believing that through awareness, curiosity, and openness we have the potential to forge abiding relationships with a range of places. The Small Heart of Things is a book about looking and listening. It incorporates travel and natural history writing, interweaving human stories with those of wild creatures as Hoffman illuminates how, when we accord places our close and patient attention, these many connections can teach us to be at home in the world.
