Family & Relationships. Nature. Nonfiction. HTML:From the New York Times columnist, a portrait of a family and the cycles of joy and grief that mark the natural world: "Has the makings of an American classic." ??Ann Patchett
Growing up in Alabama, Margaret Renkl was a devoted reader, an explorer of riverbeds and red-dirt roads, and a fiercely loved daughter. Here, in brief essays, she traces a tender and honest portrait of her complicated parents??her exuberant, creative mother; her steady, supportive father??and of the bittersweet moments that accompany a child's transition to caregiver.
And here, braided into the overall narrative, Renkl offers observations on the world surrounding her suburban Nashville home. Ringing with rapture and heartache, these essays convey the dignity of bluebirds and rat snakes, monarch butterflies and native bees. As these two threads haunt and harmonize with each other, Renkl suggests that there is astonishment to be found in common things: in what seems ordinary, in what we all share. For in both worlds??the natural one and our own??"the shadow side of love is always loss, and grief is only love's own twin."
Gorgeously illustrated by the author's brother, Billy Renkl, Late Migrations is an assured and memorable debut.
"Magnificent . . . Readers will savor each page and the many gems of wisdom they contain." ??Publishers Weekly

I have read Margaret Renkl’s nature-themed essays in the NYT for years, so i was interested in reading one of her books. This book consists of brief essays covering 2 themes: observations of nature, and end-of-life issues within her own family. Margaret grew up in Alabama, and currently writes about her life in Tennessee. Lovely, peaceful reading. I very much appreciate her perspective on life, both human and otherwise. ( )

A book of brief chapters, stories, anecdotes, about a family’s life and loss.
Written by someone from Alabama and Tennessee, so that much of the wildlife is alien to me, but the clarity of the observations are easily transferable to my neck of the woods and joyful to read. ( )

Beautifully written. The soul of a nature lover is revealed. Messages of hope and survival during the process of mourning are not gloomy, but feel like the words of a wise friend. I enjoyed the layout that included beautiful drawings and succinct chapters with short thoughts and observations about people and the world around us. ( )

Just as the backyard orb weaver deftly spins and recreates her web, Renkl beautifully intertwines the cycle of life playing out in her suburban neighborhood's landscape with the one happening inside her own aging family. A lovely, honest read. ( )
