Description - The Nature of Generosity by William Kittredge
The Nature of Generosity is at once a natural sequel to the acclaimed memoir Hole in the Sky and an entirely unique masterwork from one of the finest writers of the American West. Taking as his topic the -ordinary yearning to take physical and emotional care, - William Kittredge embarks upon a literary and philosophical grand tour that explores the very core of who we are. Whether he's recalling a childhood in Oregon, touring Europe, or studying photographs of Japanese gardens in a bookstore in New York City, Kittredge's connections are as unexpected as they are inspiring. Shattering the myth that survival of the fittest means -survival of the violent, or the cruelest, or the selfish, - Kittredge imagines a world in which altruism dominates--and offers ample evidence that this is not an unreachable utopian ideal.
