Literary Nonfiction. A selection of twenty-nine insightful, creative essays, alive with superb and tender detail. HYMNS OF HOME focuses on family and life in a way that references the questions we ask and are asked as parents, the way naming creates meaning, and the reflective nature of observation, the contained nature of technology. The man at the heart of these stories brings us closer to the world of childhood wonder, closer to our own knowledge, and asks us to ask of ourselves profound questions that, ultimately, bring us closer to everyman.
