Abstract

The essays in this collection are not wholly concerned with family relationships, but they all treat, on some level, ideas of loss and difficulty, whether in the destruction and recreation of native prairie, the struggle to understand the spiritual in the absence of faith, or the small, persistent sense of disorientation that comes with hearing loss. They are about what it means to live in a place, fully, whether that place is geographical, spiritual, or remembered, and to ground ourselves in the smallest mysteries.

An anthology of essays by Jennifer Lynn Johnson.
