Doyle releases A Shimmer of Something
Lake Oswego author Brian Doyle has announced the publishing of his latest book, A Shimmer of Something: Lean Stories of Spiritual Substance, with Liturgical Press.
A release from the publisher describes the book as prose poems, chants, litanies, simple songs, cadenced prayers, brief bursts of rhythmic observation, elegies to little moments that are not little at all in the least whatsoever-welcome to the melodic world of Brian Doyles proems, swirling with voices unreeling tales, souls telling stories, moments photographed with ink.
In A Shimmer of Something, Doyles characteristic humor and sincerity combine to make this collection a delight to read.
From his conviction that miracles breed ripples that do not cease, to his lack of faith about the life of an elderberry bush, to the amusing story of a friends experience of driving the dalai lama to Seattle, to the humorous experience of his second confession, to an intimate story of love and loss, Doyles lean stories of spiritual substance inspire, entertain and captivate.
The book is available in paperback and e-book form from Liturgical Press at litpress.org or by calling 1-800-858-5450.
Doyle is the editor of the University of Portlands award-winning Portland magazine and the author of many books, among them the spiritual essay collections Grace Notes, Leaping: Revelations & Epiphanies and a new collection of his spiritual essays, The Thorny Grace of it (Loyola Press).JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
