// Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Right. I'm not posting this to urge an those straggling (Zack, basically), but merely to provide a place for any thoughts/comments on the book.

Some links:

"The Ecotheology of Annie Dillard," by Pam Smith

Annie's vanilla site

"Ideas are tough; irony is easy," by Grach Suh

"Lunch with Annie Dillard," by Malcolm Lawrence

// announcing my arrival

This post just to say that I (that being Anna) have finally joined this thing, and unlike the rest of you have not chosen a Russian-inspired name. Mea culpa.

It looks like you all are heavily involved in The Moviegoer already, so I suppose I'll join in on the next book -- I'm quite busy with Joan Didion at present anyway (I highly recommend "Slouching Towards Bethlehem", which I'm currently immersed in).

So hello.

// The Moviegoer

Since we're all (hopefully) into the Moviegoer, I thought I would post. We can use the comment space to discuss, toss out ideas, opinions, thoughts. If anyone feels boggled by some of Percy's prose, there are some great resources on the internet; just do a search for Percy and follow various rabbit trails through link sections.

// Our Mission

    To facilitate discussion on poetry, novels, and essays in an effort to better know and understand the world that God has given us, and to better understand God Himself: to "violate the eternal."
