A few books on my shelf, books that make me want to go outdoors. Mostly memoir, all non-fiction. Breaking out of the box, embracing solitude, and seeing more. So many things have been shown so to me on these banks, so much light has illumined me by reflection here where the water comes down, that I can hardly believe that this grace never flags, that the pouring from ever-renewable sources is endless, impartial, and free. Solitude its own reward! At night I fall into bed weary instead of tense.
Alexis M. Soon, it becomes disturbingly clear that Marrow Island may be having a sinister effect on the citizens living off the land. Smith explores the connection between the female psyche and the wilderness. When I write about natural disasters and the effects of global warming in my novels, I want to express something true about them, about the deadly seriousness of them. But I also know that by crafting a story out of them, they become signifiers, casting meaning all over my characters and plot. Lucie is a skeptic with a heart: she wants to believe that the human race will redeem itself, but suspects that the planet will decide our fate before we get the chance.
