Book launch minus 2 days

The anticipation around here is palpable.

The post office says it will take a couple more days for my proof copies of it’s going to be all right to make the last 77 miles into our mailbox, so I’ll see the new book only 24 hours before the world does, but that’s OK, I’ve read it already.

The book is an introduction and 52 short essays that got their start in this space. The point is that this can be an alarming world but it’s going to be all right. We need encouraging words at times like this, so I thought I’d put a few together.

If you want a preview, here are the first five pieces after the introduction.

Better time’s a coming

It’s going to be all right

Darkness and light

Shout joy


It’s my 12th book, but who’s counting? (I shouldn’t kid myself; I’m counting, obviously.) Thanks to the folks who have pre-ordered it in advance of the “official Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022 lunch date.”
