Loitering PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Loitering free pdf Charles D'Ambrosio's essay collection "Orphans" spawned something of a cult following. In the decade since the tiny limited-edition volume sold out its print run, its devotees have pressed it upon their friends, students, and colleagues, only to find themselves begging for their copy's safe return. For anyone familiar with D'Ambrosio's writing, this enthusiasm should come as no surprise. His work is exacting and emotionally generous, often as funny as it is devastating. "Loitering" gathers those eleven original essays with new and previously uncollected work so that a broader audience might discover one of our great living essayists. No matter his subject -- Native American whaling, a Pentecostal "hell house," Mary Kay Letourneau, the work of J. D. Salinger, or, most often, his own family -- D'Ambrosio approaches each piece with a singular voice and point of view- each essay, while unique and surprising, is unmistakably his own.
