#1:

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Annie Dillard

*** $1.99 ***

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize


“The book is a form of meditation, written with headlong urgency, about seeing. . . . There is an ambition about her book that I like. . . . It is the ambition to feel.”
— Eudora Welty, New York Times Book Review

#2:

Kate Bowler

“I fell hard and fast for Kate Bowler. Her writing is naked, elegant, and gripping—she’s like a Christian Joan Didion. I left Kate’s story feeling more present, more grateful, and a hell of a lot less alone. And what else is art for?”

The Givenness of Things: Essays

Marilynne Robinson

*** $2.99 ***

*** PLUS, Buy the Ebook, and get
the audiobook for only $6.59!!!

 
“A sense of wonder pervades the powerful essays in The Givenness of Things . . . Robinson’s heroic lamentation is magnificent . . . Robinson’s insistence, throughout these essays, that we recognize the limitations of our knowledge is timely and important.”
―Karen Armstrong, The New York Times Book Review

#4:

Bob Dylan: Writings 1968-2010

Greil Marcus

*** $2.99 ***

“In his latest book on Dylan, veteran rock writer Marcus gathers his writings on the icon’s long and varied career. Though Marcus seems to include every article, comment, or essay in which he so much as mentions Dylan, longtime fans will appreciate coverage of pivotal moments like working with The Band, a screening of The Last Waltz at Martin Scorsese’s house, the first and last shows from a 14-night stand after Dylan became a Christian fundamentalist, and his 2004 performance of “Masters of War.” It’s not all fawning praise however, and Marcus not only includes his in-depth New York Times review of “New Morning” (“his best album in years”) but also his damning critique of “Street Legal.””
— Publishers Weekly Review

#5:

Fear of Falling: The Inner Life of the Middle Class

Barbara Ehrenreich

*** $2.99 ***

“Ehrenreich charges that the U.S. middle class (especially professionals) has retreated from liberalism to a meaner, more selfish outlook. Within this shift, she claims, the New Right successfully waged a spurious, sloganeering campaign asserting that liberalism represents the interests of a narrow elite. In an analysis that should be a starting point for future debate, Ehrenreich… exposes many myths and shibboleths, among them the media’s “discovery” of an alleged general rightward drift, the supposed hedonism of yuppies and the notion that most hardhats are conservatives. Faulting liberals’ “shameful silence” on Reagan’s economic and social policies, she urges the middle class to join America’s working-class majority in an effort to redistribute wealth and power downward to those who need it most.”
— Publishers Weekly Review
