“These Precious Days” Essays by Ann Patchett
This collection of deeply personal essays by the bestselling author of “Bel Canto” delves into a wide range of subjects that have impacted her life. Of particular interest is how her biological father and two other fathers impacted her in childhood on her path to becoming a writer, what Snoopy taught her about life, her take on Eudora Welty, and keeping the house but purging the possessions. Her telling of cooking her first Thanksgiving is insightful as is her year of not shopping. This gifted writer turns the ordinary into a literary adventure.
