    DescriptionTeach Us to Sit Still by Tim Parks "Riveting . . . Parks' discoveries will fascinate not only writers but all citizens of an information age steeped in and propelled by language." "--The New Yorker ""[Tim Parks'] prose is mordantly funny, self-conscious but never self-pitying, worldly but introspective, attuned to the needs of a soul that he considers thoroughly material and mortal. The result is an absorbing, at times inspiring, narrative of spiritual growth.""--Publishers Weekly, "starred review

    Review quote
    "A small triumph of narrative artistry, luxuriantly written and full of bone-dry humor." The Spectator "A searingly honest, viscerally vivid, darkly comic self-examination of the connections between writing, personality and health." David Lodge "A mystery story written with extraordinary nerve and eloquence...The result is harrowing, mordant, and unforgettable." David Shields
