"And the world fulgent & resolute, clicks on, its vision the same as a casino's: to keep the wheels turning." © Aleda Shirley
Buy The Beach Book: A Literary Companion
Selected and Introduced by Aleda Shirley.
In her introduction, Aleda Shirley wrote:
|"no other landscape evokes so much emotion as does the sea: grief and triumph, romance and loss, innocence and destruction. ... [but] people, more often than not, look happy when they are at the beach. ... This is the anthology I would like to have at the beach, ... the book I'd suggest to people looking for something fun and different and thought-provoking to read while stretched out on a sandy beach towel or relaxing on a screened porch -- poems, stories, and essays that offer a new way of looking at the familiar, eternal place where the sea meets land."|
