Book Review: High Tide in Tucson

High Tide in Tucson

Kingsolver, Barbara

Harper Collins, 1995

It’s hard to go wrong with a collection of essays from a favorite author centering on transitions and outlooks during a period of one’s own transitions, particularly when there is clear overlap among several of the essays with personal experience, and at least one of the essays forms the basis for a favorite song from a favorite folksinger….

Essays on what it means to live in a desert coming from a midwestern background; aspects of life in Tucson; standing outside the prevailing cultural views; living elsewhere; these resonated strongly.  Essays on parenting somewhat less so, but the themes of having parts of yourself torn between places still held.
