Tuesday Teaser

It's that time again! This week's tease is from one of my favorite authors:

"The feeling of love is so crucial to our species it is excessive, like labor pain. Lasting love is an act of will."
--The Maytrees, by Annie Dillard

Love, love, love Annie Dillard. The book isn't what I was expecting, but then I don't know exactly what I was expecting. It's an altogether good read. Toodles!


  1. I don't believe I've ever read any of Annie Dillard's stuff! Great teaser :)

  2. REALLY?! I definitely recommend her; so far my favorite is For the Time Being, but then I tend to enjoy her nonfiction better than fiction. Only marginally though; Maytrees is fantastic.
