From the bestselling author of "The Red Tent "and "Good Harbor," a collection of intimate, autobiographical reflections on the milestones, revelations, and balancing acts of life as a wife, mother, friend, and member of a religious community.
Before "The Red Tent "won her international literary acclaim, Anita Diamant was a columnist in Boston. Over the course of twenty years, she wrote essays that reflected the shape and evolution of her life, as well as the trends of her generation. In the end, her musings about love and marriage, birth and death, nature versus nurture, politics and religion and everything from female friendships to quitting smoking have created a public diary of the progress of her life that resonated deeply with her readers. Now, "Pitching My Tent" collects the finest columns of a writer who is a reporter by training and a storyteller by heart, all revised and enriched with new material. Personal, inspiring, and often funny, "Pitching My Tent "displays the warmth, humor, and wisdom that Diamant's legions of fans have come to cherish.
