2003 - The Untouched Minutes

by Donald Morrill


"In this fascinating tour de force, Morrill extrapolates living with fear and insecurity on an individual level to national anxiety about the disasters than can befall us." —Booklist

"Emotional and literary, this memoir is recommended for all libraries."—Library Journal

“With one act of violation, the bubble of the private life opens to admit the public—and Morrill interrogates the nature of the ‘suddenness’ brought to bear on mortality. His acutely self-conscious and astutely philosophical response asks us to address the many kinds of violence—what we see and what we don’t—that connect our lives to a world outside.”—Judith Kitchen, author of The House on Eccles Road
