9780956308665: Sightlines

The outer world flew open like a door, and I wondered - what is it that we're just not seeing? In this greatly anticipated sequel to Findings, prize-winning poet and renowned nature writer Kathleen Jamie takes a fresh look at her native Scottish landscapes, before sailing north into iceberg-strewn seas. Her gaze swoops vertiginously too; from a countryside of cells beneath a hospital microscope, to killer whales rounding a headland, to the constellations of satellites that belie our sense of the remote. Written with her hallmark precision and delicacy, and marked by moments in her own life, Sightlines offers a rare invitation to pause and to pay heed to our surroundings.

About the Author:

Multi-award winning poet Kathleen Jamie was born in the west of Scotland in 1962. She has written two works of non-fiction: Among Muslims [9780953522774], an acclaimed travel narrative, and Findings[9780954221744], the ground-breaking nature/travel book set in Scotland. She lives in Fife and is a Professor of Creative Writing at Stirling University.

From Booklist:

Award-winning Scottish poet and essayist Jamie writes of her immersions in nature and history in 14 finely tooled, scrubbed, rinsed, and polished essays. As shrewdly bemused as she is intently observant, as imaginatively interpretive as she is curious, Jamie travels to the Arctic, where she ponders time, vastness, and vulnerability. Jamie excavates her memories of the summer following her graduation from high school, when she worked at an archaeological dig, gleaning experiences that inspire far-reaching musings about our ancestors, art, and burial. She visits a raucous island colony of gannets, where the seabirds seem timeless, though disconcerting bits of plastic are woven into their seaweed nests. Jamie becomes entranced by a magnificent collection of suspended whale skeletons in a Norwegian museum and enchanted by the moon’s “pewtery, equalizing light.” So fully does she give herself over to all that she witnesses, so unexpected are her perceptions, that Jamie’s lustrous essays recharge our appreciation not only for the world’s beauty and mystery but also for the gift poetic writers such as Jamie possess for translating sensory input into gloriously calibrated, revelatory language. --Donna Seaman
