Book #4: The Primal Place (1983) by Robert Finch
Sunday, September 10, 3pm (Note change of day to Sunday)
Layered excursions into the natural and human environs of the author’s Cape Cod home. Finch begins at the window of his Brewster house, observing birds, ants, etc.–and then humans on his side of the glass. He mulls the continuity of life in an old graveyard, and discovers something about the human balance of compassion and violence in his garden.
