Celebrating Life in an Age of Plenty.
People want answers. The only problem is, they're not sure what the questions are. In this wonderful book Dwight Currie identifies the trouble that nags at Americans' souls: in an age of plenty, they want permission to celebrate. In 52 reflections following the calendar year, he invites readers to celebrate life with grace and civility.
With humour and insight, Currie uses seasons, holidays, folklore, and cultural events as the starting points to explore how we can revel in our existence with propriety. Part Garrison Keillor, part Voltaire, part good old-fashioned Mom, this book serves up the refreshing guidance and inspiration that readers hunger for.
