Wonderful Investigations: Essays, Meditations, Tales
Essays, Meditations, Tales
Dan Beachy-Quick

Touching on the works of Emerson, Thoreau, Proust, and Plato, among others, this collection of nonfiction and fables provides a walking tour of the creative mind. This is a rich investigation of what it means to think, read, write, and learn, celebrating the notion that our daily world is rich with wonder.

Christopher Howell
Finalist for the Rilke Prize

This haunted and haunting collection swings between moments of delicate connection and striking brutality. Shifting between lyric and narrative, these poems explore how our interior and exterior lives are entangled, the past living on inside us as we live in the physical world around us.
