Author Interview: Annie Dillard, Author of ‘The Abundance’

The writer Annie Dillard has a new collection of her narrative essays. It’s called “The Abundance.” And the first piece in the book is a real stunner. It’s 1979. She’s on hillside near Yakima, Wash. She’s there to witness a total eclipse of the sun – more about that in a second. Dillard won a Pulitzer for 1974’s “Pilgrim At Tinker Creek,” which was set in and around that creek in southwestern Virginia. She’s 70 now, the author of a dozen books, and she spoke with me about writing and more from her breezy porch in Key West, Fla.
