Following in the footsteps of Traces of an Active and Contemplative Life 1983-2013 published by Common Ground in 2013 which brought together previously published and unpublished articles written over the past 30 years, Odds and Ends of a Writer’s Life: 2014-2019 brings together some previously published articles and unpublished papers written over the past six years. This multi-faceted and fascinating collection addresses many of the same concerns and follows many of the same lines pursued in Traces, such as place, people, past, present and future. It does so across a range of genres that includes: autobiography; book reviews; an invective inauguration poem; a satirical essay on the uncanny Trumpster; a lexicon entry on symbiosis and the symbiocene; an eco-cultural essay on wetlands; and ecocritical essays on Thoreau.
