Finalist, Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize (BC Book Prizes) Winner, CNFC Readers' Choice Award for "Threshold" In this debut collection of personal essays, Silcott looks at the tangle of midlife, the long look back, the shorter look forward, and the moments right now that shimmer and rustle around her. Here is love, grief, uncertainty, longing, joy, desire, fury, and fear. Also wandering bears, marauding llamas, light and laundry rooms. Praise for Everything Rustles: Staff Pick, BC BookWorld "Jane Silcott writes crisp and compelling narratives; as their import emerges, small epiphanies wink into consciousness, and we are taken up into everyday life. Reading this collection of her work we glimpse layers of the real that seem so often to conceal the world from us. A wonderful book, a book of wonders." (Stephen Osborne, Publisher, Geist Magazine) "Silcott has a strong voice, and like Didion's it is one that draws the reader in, page after page. In Everything Rustles, the Vancouver-based author examines that slow onset of fears, which are increasingly more pronounced as we age. This collection of short essays is written in an eloquent, poetic and deeply personal manner." (Vancouver Sun) "Read these wonderful essays slowly; savour their lively intelligence, their thoughtfulness, their cheek. Silcott takes the personal essay right back to its most productive origins and purpose: to explore (essayer) our world's mysteries with amazement and humility." (Andreas Schroeder, author of Renovating Heaven) One of the season's "Ten Most Anticipated Books," Himalayan Walking Shoes Journal
