Over the years James Hollis has offered us many a feast. This time we are offered something different—more of a working partnership than a finished meal. Here Hollis navigates the deep questions that haunt us all, sharing his personal experience only so that we may more deeply understand our own. This is not a book of revealed truths. Rather it surrenders to the questions, guided only by whatever insight, endurance and energy we each may have. The partnership is rich in poetry as well as prose, but most of all it shares the burden of uncertainty, and reminds us of its treasures.
