Over the years James Hollis has offered us many a feast, sometimes of foods we are not used to, but we have grown to appreciate the nourishment of their unique mixtures of bitter and sweet. This time we are offered something different-more of a working partnership than a finished meal.
In this book Hollis shares our boat, navigating the questions without charts that haunt us all. He acknowledges the uniqueness and value of each journey, sharing his personal experience only so that we can find our own understanding. This is not, then, a book of revealed truths. Rather it surrenders to the questions, guided only by whatever insight, endurance and energy each of us may have. The partnership is rich in poetry as well as prose, but most of all it shoulders the burden of uncertainty, and reminds us of its treasures. - from the publisher
