One of my favorite contemporary authors is Barbara Kingsolver. In both fiction and non fiction I have felt drawn to her outlook. The most recent I have read was 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle'. I especially like her naturalist essays. I don't have book titles in front of me but was wondering if anyone else reads her work? I think she is certainly a permie at heart.

It would be great to have her for a book promo. Who's her publisher for 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle'?

That book is not really very recent...does that matter? I have a feeling she has written more since. We only have one much older book of hers here that lists HarperCollins Publishers, Inc. We check them out at our library as they get them usually, but enough of us requested 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' they inter library loaned it...might have been five years ago. That would be wonderful if she would do a book promo:)

What book of hers would be the most suitable for Permies?

I think 'Animal,Vegetable, Miracle' would be great as it is her first hand account of her family trying to grow all of their own food. 'High Tide in Tucson' and 'Small Wonders' , both non fiction essays are also appropriate I think, and excellent writing but older. I see at her 'official' site, Kingsolver.com, that her most recent book is fiction, 'Flight Behavior' about climate change.
