Ranging from an autobiographical tour-de-force that describes a childhood spent with an alcoholic father to "Looking at Women," a reflection on male yearning and confusion, to a look at the place—or absence—of nature in recent American fiction.
For his personal nonfiction, Scott Russell Sanders has won the Lannan Literary Award and the Great Lakes Book Award. His books include The Paradise of Bombs, Secrets of the Universe, and Staying Put. He lives in Bloomington, Indiana.
Sanders looks for and often finds universal truths in the particulars of everyday life. . . . A marvelous celebration of the small and large mysteries of life. —Kirkus Reviews
