For the Time Being

Purportedly a history of sand, written long before books on the “histories of things” became a fad, “For the Time Being” is really a philosophical contemplation of the sacred. Dillard is a renowned scholar and author and is as unpretentious as they come, so no fluffy New Age self-discovery here, just a brilliant, playful and simply written book reflecting on the way people throughout the ages have found joy in life despite the tragedy that imbues each era.
