Product description

Review

"Solnit . . . is the very model of a public intellectual."--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"Thought-provoking and often epigrammatic . . . Reading Solnit's various and vigorous essays is like hiking with an energetic and experienced guide: One discovers the richness of place, and gains perspective. "As Eve Said to the Serpent" will change how you look at the world."--"Bloomsbury Review"

"Solnit--a perfect guide to all things mind and matter (close to everything, in other words)--has written a gorgeous set of meditations on what we make of the material world. These essays on how we turn places and bodies into art and ideas--and into dreams and nightmares--are surprising, smart, poetic, political, and very funny."--Jennifer Price, author of "Flight Maps: Adventures with Nature in Modern America"

"Diverse and intelligent . . . An excellent vantage point from which to examine and enjoy the thinking of this maverick."--"Library Journal"

"Neatly balancing reportage, critical opinion and literary metaphor, Solnit standing clear-eyed on the shoulders of Walter Benjamin, Kristeva, Rachel Carson and many others attempts a bold, critical synthesis that, if occasionally unequal to its lofty goals, always provokes and challenges."--"Publishers Weekly"

""As Eve Said to the Serpent" is a unique and valuable collection by a writer whose star is rising. Written with wit and sensitivity, the book is exciting, accessible, and relevant to readers in a variety of fields. More importantly, it has the potential to dilate our perceptions of and thoughts about land and landscape, which are critical to our survival."--William L. Fox, editor of "Tumble Words: Writers Reading the West"

"Solnit, almost singlehandedly, is bringing the discourse of environmental feminism into its maturity, out of the realm of political correctness and into the realm of political felicity and verbal ebullience. The quality and aspiration of her writing in this book is commensurate with the urgency of her topic, which is very urgent indeed."--Dave Hickey

"Solnit's graceful and trenchant inquiries into our perceptions of nature, women, art, and technology explicate both our nostalgia for lost wilderness and our painfully slow shift from 'a mechanical to an ecological worldview.'"--"Booklist"

Thought-provoking and often epigrammatic . . . Reading Solnit's various and vigorous essays is like hiking with an energetic and experienced guide: One discovers the richness of place, and gains perspective. "As Eve Said to the Serpent" will change how you look at the world.--"Bloomsbury Review"

Solnit . . . is the very model of a public intellectual.--"San Francisco Chronicle"
