High Tide in Tucson: Essays From Now Or Never by Barbara Kingsolver

There is no one quite like Barbara Kingsolver in contemporary literature, raves the Washington Post Book World, and it is right. She has been nominated three times for the ABBY award, and her critically acclaimed writings consistently enjoy spectacular commercial success as they entertain and touch her legions of loyal fans. In High Tide in Tucson, she returns to her familiar themes of family, community, the common good and the natural world. The title essay considers Buster, a hermit crab that accidentally stows away on Kingsolvers return trip from the Bahamas to her desert home, and turns out to have manic-depressive tendencies. Buster is running around for all hes worth -- one can only presume its high tide in Tucson. Kingsolver brings a moral vision and refreshing sense of humor to subjects ranging from modern motherhood to the history of private property to the suspended citizenship of human beings in the Animal Kingdom. Beautifully packaged, with original illustrations by well-known illustrator Paul Mirocha, these wise lessons on the urgent business of being alive make it a perfect gift for Kingsolvers many fans.
