Thanks for responding, Pamela. I just finished a genre-defying book that, at times was heavy reading, but that I truly loved. It’s part memoir, part essays, part science, part art, part travel and adventure. RisingTideFallingStar by Philip Hoare. Marvelous. Maybe not one of the MOST influential in my writing life, but it certainly is tickling the edges.
