Annie Dillard is a wonderful writer: honest, observant and unique. From her childhood on, Annie's creative, gutsy way of confronting the world makes her story both intriguing and inspiring.

One of the books on my "top five" memoir list. So well-written. Annie Dillard writes of her childhood in Pittsburgh, PA. Doesn't sound captivating, right? But it is!
