About the Author

She is a member of the Academy of Arts and Letters and has received fellowship grants from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.


An august celebration of human frenzy and endurance and...an invigorating, intricate first novel. Annie Dillard shows a tremendous gift for writing in a genuinely epic mode.--New York Times Book Review
"The Living is an impressive piece of fiction and a riveting hunk of history. . . . The many readers who have been drawn in the past to Dillard's work for its elegant and muscular use of language won't be disappointed in these pages. . . . She has given herself a landscape large enough to challenge her talents."--Los Angeles Times
"A panoramic, hypnotic novel. . . . A novel of character that blends history, social change, and individual dreams in a sophisticated, seamless prose."--Seattle Times
"Above all, a novel about the precious, wondrous, solitary, terrifying, utterly common condition of human life."--Washington Post Book World
"Remarkable. . . . A pleasure to read. . . . A deftly woven narrative saturated with violence, hardship, and triumph. Readers will be richly rewarded, for by the end of this deeply felt novel it is hard to let the frontier town and its people go."--San Francisco Chronicle
"The kind of book a reader sinks into completely. . . . The characters are so compelling, the setting so detailed, so convincing, so absolutely complete. . . . The Living is an extraordinary accomplishment, one of those rare occasions when the written word results through the magic and talent of the author in the creation of the whole world."--Boston Globe
