Praise for Late Migrations: From New York Times opinion writer Margaret Renkl comes “A compact glory, crosscutting between consummate family memoir and keenly observed backyard natural history. Renkl’s deft juxtapositions close up the gap between humans and nonhumans and revive our lost kinship with other living things. I hope lots of people will discover it when it’s published this summer.” ―Richard Powers, author of The Overstory, writing in The New York Times Book Review
