Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Teach Us to Sit Still by Tim Parks   "Riveting . . . Parks' discoveries will fascinate not only writers but all citizens of an information age steeped in and propelled by language." -The New Yorker "[Tim Parks'] prose is mordantly funny, self-conscious but never self-pitying, worldly but introspective, attuned to the needs of a soul that he considers thoroughly material and mortal. The result is an absorbing, at times inspiring, narrative of spiritual growth." -Publishers Weekly, starred review
