Description

The Truth About the Barn offers answers to important questions about how barns came into being, why they look the way they do, why they're worth reflecting on, and what possible future they may have. Chapters investigate the barn's place in culture and religion, art and literature. Psychological and philosophical implications are explored. Readers are treated to an occasional recollection or account of the author's own experiences with barns.

Editorial Review

"We count on writers to show the remarkable in the ordinary, to enable us to see anew what has become familiar. David Elias has done just that in The Truth About the Barn. Never will we look at a barn in the same way again." - Marjorie Anderson, editor of the national bestselling Dropped Threads anthologies
