This book is a meditation. It begins with an observation, that of fetal monsters. Why do they exist if there is a God? The question leads to more questions. "Why is there something rather than nothing?"
Deeply existential and deeply religious and irreligious, Dillard's thoughts wonder and wander through majors thinkers, and through the centuries of human thought.
In the end we a left with a deep awe for life and the universe, and consciousness. Not to mention, for Annie Dillard's talent.
This book is a treasure of reveries.
