High Tide in Tucson - Barbara Kingsolver

Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favourite novelists and I was excited to find this book of her essays in a second hand shop. They are inspiring and moving, probably the best articles I've read. In this collection, Kingsolver covers a range of topics, including environmentalism, travelling, parenting and being a part time rock star. Her writing is consistently compassionalte and thght provoking and sometimes amusing. I would definitely recommend this book, even if you don't generally read non-fiction.

Hey, I'm so excited to read your post. I love Kingsolver, have this book on my shelf, but haven't read it yet. I'm off to read it. Maybe we can chat about it!

Isn't she a great writer? She also has a a book of poetry. I recognized my home town in Oklahoma in her first book, the Bean Trees.
