Acclaimed essayist Steven Church reflects on work, fear and fatherhood in a series of encounters that defy easy answers. From the depths of a tourist-trap gold mine to the edges of a meteor crater to the jagged landscapes of marriage and parenting, shift and flux are always front and center. In his sixth book of nonfiction, Church illustrates once again the immeasurable value of an open, essayistic mind. New and beloved essays, by a leader in creative nonfiction and editor of the influential magazine The Normal School.
