Books Info:

Finding the Top of the Sky free pdf In James Grabill's unique view no one should settle for a world that conducts itself as though there were no mythic dimension- his other collection of essays and his many stunning books of poems make this clear. But unlike many American writers critical of the way this world we shouldn't settle for is going, Grabill has the visionary skill to give us a glimpse of how it should be going. In the face of the escalating inanity and aridness of post-industrial life, the fine pieces in this volume insist that compassion triumph over cruelty, meditative clarity over bombast and spin. It is a great delight to feel the weight of Grabill's conviction (along with his immense talent) and, with sea lions, lorikeets, giant ferns, and humpback whales, to follow it to the top of the sky, where it is so much easier to see what matters and what does not. --Christopher Howell
