Annie Dillard

Annie Dillard (born April 30, 1945) is an American author. She won the Pulitzer Prize (non-fiction) in 1975 with her book Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, which is a meditation on her observations of the natural world at Tinker Creek. Some have called it a work of mysticism or theology. This combination of observations on nature and philosophical explorations is also present in several of her other books, including For the Time Being and Holy the Firm.
