Each chapter of “The Blue of Distance” dispersed from and faded into a chapter of author’s personal story of family and friends.
I traced the space and time on her maps, liked most what I experienced, even when getting lost.
I found myself lost in many parts of this book, which is appropriate. At times the writing was awe inspiring, at other time meh. That said, I will probably return to this book to re-experience it. The first chapter especially. I look forward to diving into other works by her.
As with all of Solnit's books, a journey of the wanderer. Fellow wanderers will enjoy it. Solnit echoes Tolkein in that "not all who wander are lost". And, that sometimes, getting lost is the most important part of the journey.
Beautiful prose... Solnit's use of the English language is a treat, and allows the reader to visualize the places of the book, and the places in our lives.
in her beautiful insightful discovery of herself and her place in this landscape,we find our own place and are grateful. Truly, a book to better help you inhabit your life and your world. (christian wiman)
