The Maytrees

The Maytrees

by Annie Dillard

Judy Stanton: This is the first book I've read by Annie Dillard; it came highly recommended and has been a book club read for some. The bio of Dillard called her a "gregarious recluse," and the story reflected that nature...somewhat Thoreau-like descriptions of living simply and enjoying nature. It was the first book I can recall in a very long time where I was stopped pretty regularly by words that I had never seen before! (no, I didn't look them all up) It was a quick read and did have a quirkly storyline with interesting relationship issues. I'm glad I read it, but I'm not planning on checking out her other novels.
