"Stephen Jenkinson's elegant and sorrow-freighted book brings
prophetic insight rather than pastoral affirmations. A true
story-man, Jenkinson paints image after image on the cave wall of
his parchment. Die Wise is a formidable body of work,
road-tested in ways most of us hope never to know about. Stay with
it, hold the sorrow as the gift it is, savor in small, immense
chunks. Every word is an invitation to trade fantasy for
imagination. There isn't a book like it."
