"Listening Against the Stone" brings together selections spanning the breadth of the work of Brenda Miller, including six essays that have won the Pushcart Prize. These deeply personal essays paint a picture of how her sense of spirituality has evolved and shifted through the years: always rooted in a strong desire for connection. Together, they tell the story of a single woman her way, stumbling but always seeking out touchstones--a dog, a friend, a painting, a tree--to help her gain her true bearings.
