Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Readers who savor Oliver's exquisite gifts of attentiveness, her lean lines, her celebration of the holiness of what is, will delight in her gifts applied to the being she loved longest. And anyone who sees the best of Cook's photographs here will celebrate a remarkable eye. —Brian Doyle, Christian Century

"Oliver interweaves entries from Cook's journal with her own prose-and-poetry text, revealing a richly textured life, a shared world that included prominent writers and artists." —Patricia A. Kossmann, America
