A BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week Longlisted for the Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize 2018 A Guardian Book of the Year 2018 The owl has captivated the human imagination for millennia; as a predator, messenger, emblem of wisdom or portent of doom. Owl Sense tells a new story. On 'owl walks' with her teenage son, Benji, Miriam Darlington begins a quest to identify every European species of this elusive bird. From Britain she travels to Spain, France, Serbia and Finland, and to the frosted borders of the Arctic. Along the way, however, Benji succumbs to a mysterious and disabling illness, and Miriam's endeavour soon becomes entangled with the search for his cure. Bringing the strangeness and magnificence of owls to life, Owl Sense is a book about wildness in nature but also in the unpredictable course of our human lives.

To enter into the Gospel of John and John's three letters is to embark on an adventure, the story of a great and unsurpassable love, the Love that John discovered was God's name. In following Jesus, John discovers that there is indeed an edge and urgency to what Jesus says and does. The edge is this: we, too, can be light. We can believe. We can drink the living water. And the urgency is present as well: we are also called to follow and serve. We are called to receive the Spirit. A Journal of Love is meant to be an encounter, a felt sense of what it must have been--and can be now--to live that love.
The Truro Bear and Other Adventures, a companion volume to Owls and Other Fantasies and Blue Iris, brings together ten new poems, thirty-five of Oliver's classic poems, and two essays all about mammals, insects, and reptiles. The award-winning poet considers beasts of all kinds: bears, snakes, spiders, porcupines, humpback whales, hermit crabs, and, of course, her beloved but disobedient little dog, Percy.
In Blue Iris, Mary Oliver collects ten new poems, two dozen of her poems written over the last two decades, and two previously unpublished essays on the beauty and wonder of plants. The poet considers roses, of course, as well as poppies and peonies; lilies and morning glories; the thick-bodied black oak and the fragrant white pine; the tall sunflower and the slender bean. “Blue Iris fortuitously offers an extended sequence and new contexts for a writer whose precise eye and instinct for surprising images have made her one of the best practitioners of the lyrical revelation . . . Oliver continues to earn applause and admiration for continuing to provide redemptive meditation and supple praises for nature in a time when so much is under threat.” —R.T. Smith, Shenandoah “Salvation, in Mary Oliver’s poems, consists of the living of a natural life, the dying of a natural death, and the ability to look clearly in both directions while keeping the two processes in balance.” —Jay Rogoff, Southern Review “Mary Oliver’s poems are natural growths out of a loam of perception and feeling, and instinctive skill with language makes them seem effortless. Reading them is a sensual delight.” —May Swenson “The gift of Oliver’s poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettable.” —Miami Herald Mary Oliver, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry and the National Book Award, is one of the most celebrated and best-selling poets in America. Her books include New and Selected Poems, Volume One and New and Selected Poems, Volume Two; Why I Wake Early; Owls and Other Fantasies; House of Light; Dream Work; White Pine; West Wind; The Leaf and the Cloud; and What Do We Know. She has also published five books of prose, including Blue Pastures, Rules for the Dance, and Winter Hours, and an audio, At Blackwater Pond. She lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
