Rebecca Solnit, Author, The Faraway Nearby

Award-winning San Francisco author Solnit reaches beyond her own life to the stories she heard and read that helped her navigate the difficult journey through her mother's illness, disintegrating memory and eventual death. Exploring the essential elements of empathy for dealing with irreparable loss, Solnit has created a marvelous Russian doll of a book with a narrative as rich as the fairy tales she recreates.
