“Narrative essays old and new” says the cover. Alas, Annie Dillard’s new book is more of a “Best of” collection of essays from other books she’s published. Nope. Nothing new. But there is an essay called This is the Life that was published previously in Image magazine if you haven’t yet read that one.
At least there is an interview with Dillard on NPR. And it really is a NEW interview.
