Intimate Accounts description
Two collections of profound and deeply personal meditations on what it is to be human in today’s world. In She I Dare Not Name, Donna Ward reflects with wry humour, fierce intelligence and unflinching honesty on a life lived in unexpected solitude. Vicki Hastrich‘s Night Fishing explores the pleasures of fishing, writing and thinking in a captivating series of observational essays on life, philosophy and the natural world. These two remarkable books lead us on a journey through the ordinary, elegantly illuminating the extraordinary in the every day.
