The Tiny Bee That Hovers at the Center of the World

The Tiny Bee That Hovers at the Center of the World

by David Searcy
Paperback
Publication Date: 20/07/2021
RRP  $29.75 $29.50
An ethereal meditation on longing, loss, and time in a present that is rapidly fading, from the acclaimed essayist and author of Shame and Wonder 

David Searcy's writing is enchanting and peculiar, obsessed with plumbing the mysteries and wonders of our everyday world, the beauty and cruelty of time, and nothing less than what he calls "the whole idea of meaning." In The Tiny Bee That Hovers at the Center of the World, he leads the reader across the landscapes of his extraordinary mind, moving from the decaying architectural wonder that is the town of Arcosanti, Arizona, to driving the vast, open Texas highway in his much-abused college VW Beetle, to the mysterious, canal-riddled Martian landscape that famed astronomer Percival Lowell first set eyes on, via his telescope, in 1894. Searcy does not come at his ideas directly, but rather digresses and meditates and analyzes until some essential truth has been illuminated--and it is in that journey that the beauty is found.
