Second Star and other Reasons for Lingering

Delerm, Philippe

Regular price $18.00 Sale

A still life in motion, 
Second Star "consumes the present" with a patient curiosity, asking us to "put off tomorrow" and join Philippe Delerm in tasting, touching, listening, and noticing.

Whether biting into a bitter turnip or savoring a summer evening in June, Philip Delerm's literary snapshots transport us to simple, often overlooked sensations and pleasures, and, pausing, expand a moment or emotion outwards in concentric circles.
Vividly translated by Jody Gladding, these evocative vignettes invite us to linger, to "savor the few moments of silence"––as if each bite of a ripe watermelon, each exhaled breath on a bitterly cold day, each cloudy evening on the beach, were our last.
