New Scholarship: Diana Saverin on Annie Dillard

In the current Atlantic Monthly, recent Yale graduate Diana Saverin explores the Annie Dillard Archive. "When Annie Dillard wrote Pilgrim at Tinker Creek," Saverin writes, "she didn’t think anyone would want to read a memoir by a 'Virginia housewife.' So she left her domestic life out of the book—and turned her surroundings into a wilderness."
