This year's wonderfully diverse collection, which features such
respected writers as Joan Didion, Annie Dillard, Ian Frazier, Mary
Gordon, and Arthur Miller. These essays range widely across the
American landscape -- from a California monastery to a Manhattan
apartment -- and along the way introduce us to a fine array of
talented new voices. Called by John Updike "the best essayist of my
generation," Hoagland has assembled a powerful volume that vividly
showcases the art and craft of the contemporary essay. IN SEARCH OF
