Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
(This book cannot be returned.)

In this collection, prize-winning Irish essayist Chris Arthur ranges over subjects as various as a girl's ear, a vulture's egg, the letters in a Scrabble game, a sprig of witch-hazel, and the chasms of complexity contained in an ordinary moment. Whether he's writing about owls, leaves, a street in his hometown, the symbiotic interrelationships in the stomach of a termite, a souvenir cigarette box from a ship sunk in World War II, or the coincidence of three hearts beating simultaneously together, what gives these unorthodox meditations their appeal is the way they tap into unexpected seams of meaning and mystery in our everyday terrain. HIDDEN CARGOES offers a virtuoso demonstration of the potential of the creative essay.
