Mcphee is my favorite writer of all time. His sentences are beautifully constructed, his words breathe life into his subjects. "Coming Into the Country" is a masterpiece. When I need to remember how magical our existence really is I pick up one of his writings and read, reread and reread. I'm so grateful that a boodstore clerk in DC spoke so rhapsodically about reading a book entirely about oranges by Mcphee. A new world opened up for me.
