Accompanied by a slide-show of his photographs, Austin Granger reads an excerpt from his (as of yet unpublished) book, 'Elegy from the Edge of a Continent: Photographing Point Reyes.'
The work has been called "Beautiful" (Diana Landau, Senior Editor, Sierra Club Books), "Wonderful" (Michael A. Smith, Lodima Press), and "Captivating" (Claire Chandler, Merrell Publishers). Sidney Hall Jr., author of 'Fumbling in the Light,' writes: "As an editor who has read hundreds of unpublished books over the last 30 years, I have found a handful of manuscripts that I loved, but Austin Granger's 'Elegy from the Edge of a Continent' is the first manuscript that truly stunned me-and thrilled me-from beginning to end. It is an ecstatic paean to a place, that reminds me of Henry Beston's 'The Outermost House' (although its intent is quite different). Its transformative language explores this place so deeply and profoundly that the reader comes away with a whole new relationship to all places and to life itself. The book is, in my mind, one long, meticulously crafted, prose poem, with immense power. I think that it actually has the potential to become a classic."
