about

A landmark collection of prose from pulitzer prize winner annie dillard, including her most beloved pieces and some rarely seen work

The Abundance includes the best of Annie Dillard’s essays, delivered in her fierce and muscular prose. Intense, vivid, and fearless, her work endows the true and seemingly ordinary aspects of life with beauty and irony.

Marking the vigor of this powerful writer, The Abundance highlights Annie Dillard’s elegance of mind.
