The Maytrees by Annie Dillard( Book )

29 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toby Maytree first sees Lou Bigelow on her bicycle in postwar Provincetown, Massachusetts. Her laughter and loveliness catch his breath. Maytree is a Provincetown native, an educated poet of thirty. As he courts Lou, just out of college, her stillness draws him. Hands-off, he hides his serious wooing, and idly shows her his poems. Dillard traces the Maytrees' decades of loving and longing. They live cheaply among the nonconformist artists and writers that the bare tip of Cape Cod attracts. Lou takes up painting. When their son Pete appears, their innocent Bohemian friend Deary helps care for him. These people are all loving, and ironic. As Dillard intimately depicts nature's vastness and nearness, she presents willed bonds of loyalty, friendship, and abiding love.--From publisher description

Holy the firm by Annie Dillard( Book )

26 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1975 Annie Dillard took up residence on an island in Puget Sound in a wooded room furnished with "one enormous window, one cat, one spider and one person." For the next two years she asked herself questions about time, reality, sacrifice death, and the will of God. In Holy the Firm she writes about a moth consumed in a candle flame, about a seven-year-old girl burned in an airplane accident, about a baptism on a cold beach. But behind the moving curtain of what she calls "the hard things -- rock mountain and salt sea," she sees, sometimes far off and sometimes as close by as a veil or air, the power play of holy fire

Mornings like this : found poems by Annie Dillard( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Mornings Like This Annie Dillard has given us a witty and moving collection of poems in a wholly original form. Extracting and rearranging sentences from old or odd books, she has composed ironic poems - some serious, some light - on poetry's most heartfelt themes of love, nature, nostalgia, and death. This is a unique variation on the found-poem form. It enables the poet "to dig deep with a shallow tool." Dillard's characteristic voice sounds throughout

The living a novel by Annie Dillard( Recording )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ninety miles north of Seattle on the northwest coast of Washington lies Bellingham Bay, where a rough settlement founded in the 1850's would become the town of Whatcom. Here the Lummi and Nooksack Indian people fish and farm; hermits pay their debts in sockeye salmon; miners track gold-bearing streams. Here, too, is the intimate, murderous tale of three men. Clare Fishburn believes that greatness lies in store for him. John Ireland Sharp, an educated orphan, abandons hope when he sees socialists expel the Chinese workers from the region. Beal Obenchain, who lives in a cedar stump, threatens Clare Fishburn's life. A killer lashes a Chinese worker to a wharf piling at low tide. Settlers pour in to catch the boom the railroads bring. People give birth, drown, burn, inherit rich legacies, and commit expensive larcenies. All this takes place a hundred years ago, when these vital, ruddy men and women were "the living."

10 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This personal narrative surveys the panorama of our world, past and present. Here is a natural history of sand, a catalogue of clouds, a batch of newborns on an obstetrical ward, a family of Mongol horsemen. Here is the story of Jesuit paleontologist Teilhard de Chardin digging in the deserts of China. Here is the story of Hasidic thought rising in Eastern Europe. Here are defect and beauty together, miracle and tragedy, time and eternity. Dillard poses questions about God, natural evil, and individual existence. Personal experience, science, and religion bear on a welter of fact. How can an individual matter? How might one live?
