May’s Selection

Hold Still: a Memoir with Photographs by Sally Mann

“…The best quality of “Hold Still” — a book that strikes me as an instant classic among Southern memoirs of the last 50 years — is its ambient sense of an original, come-as-you-are life that has been well lived and well observed. It’s a book that dials open the aperture on your own senses. Like the photographs she most admires, it is rooted in particulars yet has “some rudiment of the eternal in it.” (New York Times review available here)

This book is shortlisted for the National Book Award for Non-fiction, 2015. Follow this link for an interview with Sally Mann on the National Public Radio program Fresh Air.
