"The Inside Story" is a cosmic fable enacted within an eighteenth-century American oak chest. Though the story is brief, it is large in scale and leads to a moral conclusion. Its thirty-six color photographs are even more important than the words.
Within these pages an empty chest and a world of things plucked from the author's past and garden are allowed to speak and feel and fear —before coming together to discover some worldly wisdom.
This is a book for imperfect adults, lovers of unexpected beauty and (just possibly) children already sensitive and wise.
