Publisher's Summary

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.

Imaginative.

I loved the way this book required me to look beyond my concept of things and memories and what they mean.

Horrible Narrator

What would have made Teaching a Stone to Talk better?

A different narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Randye Kaye?

Anyone. I had to stop a few minutes in because the narrator was so bad--she sounded like a computer generated narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I will perhaps try reading a hard copy.
