No post from the memoir this week. I've just arrived in New York--plane five hours late--and it's freezing; also brimming with Christmas cheer, something New York does better than anywhere else I know. Peace and joy to all.
I am the author of The Grizzly Bear (Knopf, 1984), Nature First: Keeping Our Wild Places and Wild Creatures Wild (Roberts Rinehart, 1987), A Story of Deep Delight (Viking, 1990), The Return of the Wolf to Yellowstone (Holt, 1997; named by Amazon.com as one of the ten best nature books ever written) and Alice Waters and Chez Panisse: The Romantic, Impractical, Often Eccentric, Ultimately Brilliant Making of a Food Revolution (Penguin Press, 2007).
My essays, poems, reporting, and reviews have appeared in Audubon, The New Yorker, Natural History, High Country News, Town & Country, The New York Times (including the book review), The Washington Post, and Saveur. I wrote the PBS documentary Alexander Calder, which won a Peabody Award and an Emmy.
