    A Stroll Before Dark - Essays

    In this collection of essays, Richard Church explores themes of countryside, poetry, family, and finding inspiration in the mundane. Split into two parts 'Moving About' and 'Sitting Still', these titles reflect the happy combination of travel sketches with literary criticism, of observations on household duties with the philosophy drawn from a lifetime's study and practice of the art of writing. 
     
    First published in 1965, A Stroll Before Dark muses on everything from the wonder of the aurora borealis to the smallest details of life with a refreshing clarity and warmth. Whether discussing the habits of his pet cat, the poetry of John Betjeman, the differences between the changing, and yet unchanging, face of his beloved Kent or a visit to a South African game reserve, Church's readers will be enriched and entertained by the breadth of his knowledge, the elegance of his prose, and, above all, by his compassion, humour, and love of life.

    Through the author’s travels in Europe and the United States, Try to Get Lost explores the quest for place that compels and defines us: the things we carry, how politics infuse geography, media’s depictions of an idea of home, the ancient and modern reverberations of the word “hotel,” and the ceaseless discovery generated by encounters with self and others on familiar and foreign ground. Frank posits that in fact time itself may be our ultimate, inhabited place—the “vastest real estate we know,” with a “stunningly short” lease.

    Twenty-five years of essays from one of America’s most prolific and acclaimed writers, the New York Times–bestselling author of Legends of the Fall.   The bestselling author of thirty-nine books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—including Dalva and Returning to Earth—Jim Harrison was one of our most beloved and acclaimed writers, adored by both readers and critics. In Just Before Dark, Harrison’s essays and articles have been selected from twenty-five years of work, from venues as diverse as Playboy, The Nation, Outside, and the American Poetry Review. They explore the passions and concerns of a classic American writer—from ice fishing to bar pool, nouvelle cuisine and night walks—with keen insight and great humanity. It is an exceptional reminder of why Harrison was one of our most cherished and important writers.   “One of the most interesting and entertaining bodies of work by any writer of his generation.” —Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune
