A Life

Laura Das­sow Walls

“I’ve al­ways been slightly skep­ti­cal of bi­og­ra­phy doorstops. I read this book in two sit­tings. It will not be used as a doorstop—ever. . . . Walls, scour­ing Thoreau’s pub­lished and un­pub­lished writ­ings, gives her read­ers hun­dreds of fleet­ing chances to catch sight of a beau­ti­fully un­tamed but dis­tinctly Amer­i­can ex­is­tence.”—John Kaag, Chron­i­cle of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Cloth $35.00
