Her new memoir is River House.
Recently I asked Lawrence what she was reading. Her reply:
I read only non-fiction, mostly first-person memoir or the like. I am a slow reader and enjoy poetic prose from the late Ellen Meloy in Anthropology of Turquoise, Terry Tempest Williams’ in Red, or Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire.Read an excerpt from River House and learn more about the book at the publisher's website.
The book on my bed stand is Harriet Fasenfest’s Householder’s Guide to the Universe. She’s full of vim and vigor and gets life on the page with all its complexities. Tough questions and tough answers.
Frankly, I don’t read enough. Between farming, family, rivers, and the drafts of my own book, I have very little time for sitting still or reading for pleasure. I admire anyone who does.
