Putting a new book out into the world is a fun process. I have received wonderful feedback from readers. It's interesting to hear how different essays have resonance for diverse readers. As a reader of essay collections, I know that feeling. Some essays don't land at all. Others seem fine. But then there is that one or two that makes you pause, reread a paragraph or smile. It was always my intent to create a buffet of works and let the reader decide when to come back for seconds.
