A Book of Bees

by Hubbell, Sue

Condition: Very Good/None issued

Houghton Mifflin, 1988. Less than 500g to post, 194pp. An author who raises honeybees draws a spirited picture of her life and her bees through all four seasons of the year in coastal Maine, relating their movements to human solitude, loneliness, and the accommodation of nature. reviewer says > I was entranced by the writing of this author. She wrote eloquently of her changing life at the same time she was sharing her growing knowledge of beekeeping. It was a treat to watch both stories develop side by side, overlapping and enhancing each other.. Paperback. Very Good/None issued. 19.5 Cm.

"The real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life," David Quammen wrote in the New York Times. This book is, like its author, a unique achievement. Weaving a vivid portrait of her own life and her bees' lives through the seasons, Hubbell writes "about bees to be sure, but also about other things: the important difference between loneliness and solitude . . . the accommodating of oneself to nature" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
