In this dazzling collection, Annie Dillard explores the world over, from the Arctic to the Ecuadorian jungle, from the Galapagos to her beloved Tinker Creek. With her entrancing gaze she captures the wonders of natural facts and human meanings: watching a sublime lunar eclipse, locking eyes with a wild weasel, or beholding mirages appearing over Puget Sound through summer.

Annie Dillard is one of the most respected and influential figures in contemporary nonfiction and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Teaching a Stone to Talk illuminates the world around us and showcases Dillard in all her enigmatic genius.

Annie Dillard is the acclaimed author of many books, including the Pulitzer Prize winner Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, as well as An American Childhood, The Living, and Mornings Like This. She is a member of the Academy of Arts and Letters and has received fellowship grants from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Born in 1945 in Pittsburgh, Annie attended Hollins College in Virginia. After living for five years in the Pacific Northwest, she returned to the East Coast, where she now lives with her family.

Randye Kaye is an accomplished voice talent, actress, singer, broadcaster, and author. She received a Listen-Up Award nomination and starred reviews for Ben Behind His Voices, which she also wrote, bringing together the various facets of her career. She lives in Trumbull, Connecticut, where she voices everything from commercials to cartoons when the family remembers to be quiet.

Reviews

"Dillard waxes poetic about the big and the small in this collection of early essays, which highlight her skill as a wordsmith, her tenacity at drawing fascinating analogies, and her nuance in capturing the power of a given moment." ---AudioFile Expand reviews
