About this product
- DescriptionI am leaving you all my journals, but you must promise me you won't look at them until after I'm gone. This is what Terry Tempest Williams' mother, the matriarch of a large Mormon clan in rthern Utah, told her a week before she died. It was a shock to Williams to discover that her mother had kept journals. But t as much of a shock to discover that the three shelves of journals were all blank. In fifty-four short chapters, Williams recounts memories of her mother, ponders her own Mormon faith, and contemplates the tion of absence in art and in our world. When Women Were Birds is a carefully crafted kaleidoscope that keeps turning around the question: What does it mean to have a voice?
- Author BiographyTerry Tempest Williams is the award-winning author of fourteen books, including Leap, An Unspoken Hunger, Refuge, and, most recently, Finding Beauty in a Broken World. She divides her time between Castle Valley, Utah, and Moose, Wyoming.
