HarperCollins Canada is pleased to present the beloved New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett (The Dutch House, Bel Canto) as she reflects on home, family, friendships and writing in These Precious Days, a deeply personal collection of essays.

"Any story that starts will also end." As a writer, Ann Patchett knows what the outcome of her fiction will be. Life, however, often takes turns we do not see coming. Patchett ponders this truth in these wise essays that afford a fresh and intimate look into her mind and heart. Infused with the author's grace, wit, and warmth, the pieces in These Precious Days resonate deep in the soul, leaving an indelible mark.

Ann Patchett is one of the most celebrated writers of our time. She is the author of eight novels–including Bel Canto, State of Wonder, and The Dutch House, the editor of Best American Short Stories, 2006, and three books of nonfiction. She has won numerous prizes, including the PEN/Faulkner Award and the Orange Prize for Fiction, and her work has been translated into more than thirty languages. She was named one of the "100 most influential people in the world" by Time magazine.
