Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life - Books - Review

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - Barbara Kingsolver's book about leaving Arizona to live on a family farm in PA eating only local food and food they grow.

Empathy is really the opposite of spiritual meanness. It's the capacity to understand that every war is both won and lost. And that someone else's pain is as meaningful as your own.

Author of The Poisonwood Bible, The Bean Trees, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, Prodigal Summer, Flight Behavior, Animal Dreams, Pigs in Heaven, The Lacuna, High Tide in Tucson, and Small Wonder

Terms like that, “Humane Society,” are devised with people like me in mind, who don’t care to dwell on what happens to the innocent.

Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver another great novel! But be sure to read Bean Trees first!!

Barbara Kingsolver: Pigs in Heaven. A wonderful conclusion to the story started in The Bean Trees. It was heart-breaking and hope-making. A beautiful story.

Corinne recommended The Poisonwood Bible (Barbara Kingsolver) - "quite heavy going but an absolute page turner"

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver - a wonderfully heavy and intense celebration of the confusing nature of existence.

This book has it all: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Lev Trotsky, President Hoover, President Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin (not in that order), but most importantly--a beautiful story.

The Lacuna: A Novel by Barbara Kingsolver.An epic journey from the Mexico City of artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo to the America of Pearl Harbor, FDR, and J." Loved it.

A thought to start your morning. #EvasEverydayLettering

The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live in it, under its roof.

“Will you explain to me why people encourage delusional behaviour in children, and medicate it in adults?”  ― Barbara Kingsolver, Flight Behavior

Barbara Kingsolver: 'Motherhood is so sentimentalised in our culture'

I read this several years ago and really enjoyed how each chapter is written by a different member of this family of missionaries in the Belgian Congo.
