A pelican in the wilderness : hermits, solitaries and recluses by Isabel Colegate( Book )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her novels, Isabel Colegate has often explored the psychology of the seeker, the person embarked upon a search for understanding, for grace, and for perfect possession of his soul. Now, in her first work of nonfiction, she turns her attention to the archetypal seeker, the "pioneer of the spirit" who hears the call to solitude and, through self-exile from humanity, discovers not only who he or she is but, paradoxically, how to live among others. The author comes to her material not as scholar, not as a historian, but as a writer who herself has felt the pull of solitude. Her book is a witty, idiosyncratic personal essay that draws upon the lives, examples, and ways of those hermits and solitaries she has come to know, either through their books, books about them, or visits to their places. Some are saints and heroes, others eccentrics and frauds, but all are unforgettable

Anxious to prevent a scandal and protect Lane's elderly mother from the disclosure of his disgrace, Judith seems to be wholly into Reeves's power.
