With Leap, Terry Tempest Williams, award-winning author of Refuge, offers a sustained meditation on passion, faith, and creativity-based upon her transcendental encounter with Hieronymus Bosch's medieval masterpiece The Garden of Delights.
Williams examines this vibrant landscape with unprecedented acuity, recognizing parallels between the artist's prophetic vision and her own personal experiences as a Mormon and a naturalist. Searing in its spiritual, intellectual, and emotional courage, Williams's divine journey enables her to realize the full extent of her faith and through her exquisite imagination opens our eyes to the splendor of the world.
"Strange and endlessly fascinating... take[s] on the burning urgency of a dream."
"[A] dynamic, shape-shifting and lyrically interrogative meditation."
"Intriguing... [Williams] approaches art as she approaches religion: as a matter of revelation."
Terry Tempest Williams lives in Grand County, Utah.
