Seven people met to discuss The Faraway Nearby by Rebecca Solnit. Not all readers were able to finish the book where admiration for her craft did not equal entertainment. We agreed the author had a talent for visual imagery and storytelling in combination. Her true-life essays evoke the Arabian Nights, with never-ending adventures to enthrall and distract. It was a challenging read and an interesting one.
