“In this luminous new essay collection, acclaimed author Kathleen Jamie visits archaeological sites and mines her own memories – of her grandparents, of youthful travels – to explore what surfaces and what reconnects us to our past. As always she looks to the natural world for her markers and guides. Most movingly, she considers, as her father dies and her children leave home, the surfacing of an older, less tethered sense of herself.
“Surfacing offers a profound sense of time passing and an antidote to all that is instant, ephemeral, unrooted.”
