  • Description or summary of the book: From the cosmic to the quotidian, this collection of essays by Amy Leach asks us to reconsider our kinship with the wild world. The debut collection of a writer whose accolades precede her: a Whiting Award, a Rona Jaffe Award, a 'Best American Essays' selection, and a Pushcart Prize, all received before her first book-length publication. This book represents a major break-out of an entirely new brand of nonfiction writer, in a mode like that of Ander Monson, John D Agata, and Eula Biss, but a new sort of beast entirely its own. 'Things That Are 'takes jellyfish, fainting goats, and imperturbable caterpillars as just a few of its many inspirations. In a series of essays that progress from the tiniest earth dwellers to the most far flung celestial bodiesconsidering the similarity of gods to donkeys, the inexorability of love and vines, the relations of exploding stars to exploding sea cucumbersAmy Leach rekindles a vital communion with the wild world, dormant for far too long. 'Things That Are 'is not specifically of the animal, the human, or the phenomenal; it is a book of wonder, one the reader cannot help but leave with their perceptions both expanded and confounded in delightful ways.'
