520    "Following her bestselling The Architect of Desire, 
       Suzannah Lessard returns with a remarkable book, a work of
       relentless curiosity and a graceful mixture of observation
       and philosophy. This intriguing hybrid will remind some of
       W. G. Sebald and others of Rebecca Solnit, but it is 
       Lessard's singular talent to combine this profound book-
       length mosaic 'a blend of historical travelogue, 
       architectural tour, philosophical meditation, and prose 
       poem' into a work of unique genius, as she describes and 
       reimagines our landscapes. In this exploration of our 
       surroundings, The Absent Hand contends that to reimagine 
       landscape is a form of cultural reinvention. The Absent 
       Hand begins by observing the residual places from our 
       country's first European settlements, and continues to the
       life of our cities and their eventual overflow into 
       suburbs and wildernesses. Yet Lessard is always joining us
       to discuss the effects of "enclosure," of how we manage to
       live on and in the land, how we surround ourselves on the 
       land with stories, roads, buildings, and ideas. Whether 
       it's climate change altering the meaning of nature, or 
       digital communications altering the nature of work, the 
       global enclosure is panoramic, infiltrative, inescapable. 
       No one will finish this book, this journey, without having
       their ideas of living and settling in their surroundings 
       profoundly enriched"--|cProvided by publisher.
