THE INTROVERTED MUSICIAN

classicpenguin:

Even the greatest journeys must come to an end, and so today we say our goodbyes to Peter Matthiessen. Called “our greatest modern nature writer the lyrical tradition” by Stephen Jay Gould, Matthiessen penned meticulously crafted pieces of both fiction and non-fiction — stories of the vast world around us that most of us don’t ever get to see.  We are grateful to have his final work, In Paradise, as his parting gift.
