Visions from San Francisco Bay

Czeslaw Milosz; Translated by Richard Lourie

Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Interrelated essays by the Nobel Laureate on his adopted home of California, which Lewis Hyde, writing in The Nation, called "remarkable, morally serious and thought-provoking essays, which strive to lay aside the barren categories by which we have understood and judged our state . . . Their subject is the frailty of modern civilization."
