"Just opened the package I picked up yesterday. Blow-Drying a Chicken is written by Molly Fisk, one of the many facebook friends I have yet to meet in flesh. Years ago, when I lived in Nevada City, I was bowled over with delight by her radio essays on KVMR. I have been reading this wonderful, newly published book of essays for only a few minutes and already have teared up and belly-laughed. Can be found at Amazon."
These essays are both wise and foolish: offering insightful, fresh perspective on many topics and well-spiced with self effacing hilarity.
Structured to fit the cycle of an ordinary year, in this book the four seasons become for Fisk a journey of extraordinary living where we accompany her on mind-opening journeys in her green Toyota throughout northern California ( and beyond). For her, even a visit to the local Nevada County coffee shop becomes a field trip rich in lessons about human nature and the responsibilities of community.
"All that I hope to say in books, all that I ever hope to say is that I love the world," E.B. White memorably tells us. Molly Fisk holds similar views. Read *Blow Drying a Chicken: Observations of a Working Poet* to deepen your beliefs that in our degenerate world of broken social contracts and heart-wrenching wars where social justice often fails to carry the day even for the lucky and brave, love and a decent and inclusive vision of community can still prevail.
