7 Authors on the Books They’re Packing for Their Summer Vacations
The most famous verse in it is the title poem, which never fails to bring me back from our tech-driven, fast-paced world into memories of beautiful forest walks. His words fill me with such ease and warmth, and they never fail to put me in a better, heightened mood. I always feel like his poems help me to see the world, rather than just pass through it blindly. I could have picked any volume of his work, but this — his latest — is a great place for people to start. Bells in Winter by Czeslaw Milosz This slim book of poetry brings moments of intense wonder about the unknowableness of the human condition. Some of these poems calm me like a drink of cold, clear water. That there is someone like Milosz, who can understand and distill the human experience in this way, helps make our modern social chaos recede.
How do we recover from loss? How much do we really know about the people we love? A masterly portrait of grief written by an author of enormous sensitivity and insight. Not anymore. The Dependents is a fine debut, full of intelligent writing and free of the canine desire to please that afflicts so much contemporary writing.
Indie bookshops Hive. Shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize When widowed mule breeder Cy Bellman reads in the newspaper that colossal ancient bones have been discovered in a Kentucky swamp, he sets out from his small Pennsylvania farm to see for himself if the rumours are true: that the giant monsters are still alive and roam the uncharted wilderness beyond the Mississippi River. Promising to return within two years, he leaves behind his daughter, Bess, to the tender mercies of his taciturn sister, Julie. Bellman, meanwhile, ventures farther and farther from home, across the harsh and alien landscapes of the West in reckless pursuit of the unknown. Not a word is wasted in this tale of American exploration that holds tragedy and comedy in delicate balance. This is a gently seductive book, one that entrances right to its cleverly conceived end.
