Living by Fiction


“In her work, the object of her philosophical inquiries is art—in particular, contemporary writing. Fiction, argues Dillard, rather than the more specialized fields of psychology, physics, and anthropology, best interprets the ideas and experiences most crucial to the human condition….This is a bold, provocative book that celebrates the necessity of art.”
Saturday Review

“Whether the field of investigation is nature or fiction, Annie Dillard digs for ultimate meanings as instinctively and as determinedly as hogs for truffles.”
