A Guest of the World: Meditations


"Highly informative...Lockwood certainly succeeds in making a specialised academic subject fascinating." - Nicholas Lezard, Saturday Guardian 


"We might think of ourselves as uninvited, but not unwelcome, guests of the planet. And I think the rules for being a good guest of the world are just the same: Ask little, accept what is offered and give thanks." Lockwood is a 2002 winner of the Pushcart Prize and author of Grasshopper Dreaming and Prairie Soul, also published by Skinner House Books.
