From Here to There and Back Again

Sue Hubbell
Collected writings from the author of A Country Year, Shrinking the Cat, and Waiting for Aphrodite

Description

From Here to There and Back Again is the much-anticipated collection of essays on an array of offbeat and engrossing subjects by magazine essayist and nature writer Sue Hubbell , author of A Country Year, Shrinking the Cat, and Waiting for Aphrodite.

Reading Sue Hubbell is like embarking on a journey of discovery with a close friend. Her writing is witty, learned yet unassuming, intensely personal, and pointedly honest as she ranges far and wide on such topics as after-hours truck stops, the country's best pie restaurants, bowling shoes, Costa Rica's blue morpho butterfly, earthquakes, and the honey trade. Several of her pieces take place in Michigan locales as well, including Elvis sightings in Vicksburg and the magicians' convention in Colon. In the end you'll return from these travels refreshed, enlightened—and wiser.

Sue Hubbell is the author of A Country Year, A Book of Bees, Shrinking the Cat, Waiting for Aphrodite, and others. She is a contributor to the New York Times, New Yorker, Smithsonian, and other publications and lives in Maine.

Praise / Awards

  • "Hubbell's success in delivering her message lies in her straightforward, uncynical tone. In the age of irony, it's refreshing to read an author who, at the end of an essay describing an all-day struggle to deliver a load of honey to Bloomingdale's, can write, 'It was one of the best days I've ever had in New York'—and mean it. . . . The work of Hubbell [and Gilbert] is that rarest of things: writing that deserves not only to be published, but to be read and reread for the benefit of all nature, both human and wild."
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch
