Reseña del editor:

"There is no one quite like Barbara Kingsolver in contemporary literature," raves the Washington Post Book World, and it is right. She has been nominated three times for the ABBY award, and her critically acclaimed writings consistently enjoy spectacular commercial success as they entertain and touch her legions of loyal fans.

In "High Tide in Tucson", she returns to her familiar themes of family, community, the common good and the natural world. The title essay considers Buster, a hermit crab that accidentally stows away on Kingsolver's return trip from the Bahamas to her desert home, and turns out to have manic-depressive tendencies. Buster is running around for all he's worth-- one can only presume it's high tide in Tucson. Kingsolver brings a moral vision and refreshing sense of humor to subjects ranging from modern motherhood to the history of private property to the suspended citizenship of human beings in the Animal Kingdom.

Beautifully packaged, with original illustrations by well-known illustrator Paul Mirocha, these wise lessons on the urgent business of being alive make it a perfect gift for Kingsolver's many fans.

Críticas:

"Kingsolver's essays should be savored like quiet afternoons with a friend.... [She] speaks in a language rich with music and replete with good sense.""--New York Times Book Review""A delightful, challenging, and wonderfully informative book." "--San Francisco Chronicle""The acclaimed novelist's extraordinary powers of observations and understanding of character serve her beautifully in this collection of essays." "--Entertainment Weekly""Ms. Kingsolver possesses the rare ability to see the natural world with the keenness of both the poet and the naturalist." "--Washington Times""A book full of discoveries.""--Cleveland Plain Dealer""Whether cultural, personal, or theoretical, Kingsolver's nonfiction is a delight.""--Seattle Times""Brilliant...lucid, well thought-out, and remarkably sensitive. Kingsolver's power will linger long after you've finished "High Tide in Tucson.""--Kansas City Star""Clever...magical...beautifully crafted. Kingsolver spins you around the philosophic world a dozen times.""--Milwaukee Sentinel"
