Enchantment: Awakening Wonder in an Anxious Age By Katherine May Cover Image
ISBN: 9780593329993
Availability: Coming soon - PRE-ORDER NOW!
Published: Riverhead Books - February 28th, 2023

British author Katherine May knows exactly what I need when I need it. I read her book, Wintering, during the hardest days of the pandemic. She wrote of a time in her life, pre-pandemic, when she felt hopeless, but her words resonated with my feelings of despair during the isolation of 2020. Her newest book, Enchantment: Awakening Wonder in an Anxious Age, is just as timely. Though very personal, she addresses the universality of our shock at the fallout from the pandemic and how we can recover some of our contentment and joy. The book is beautifully written, and there are many lines that will linger with me.
