Readers who appreciate Amy Leach’s singular style as an essayist and devoured her first collection, Things That Are, can now rejoice and join The Everyday Ensemble.

This new essay collection celebrates the natural world. The Ensemble of the title means me, you, and everybody—every other living thing.

‘Speckled and Plain, perfect and imperfect, indigo-feathered, green-skinned, orange-toed, squashed of fice, cracked of shell, miniature of heart, young as ducklings, old as hills”: We are all beckoned—all of us “indigenous to earth” to join in Amy Leach’s unforgettable stories about our interconnected world.

TPR was founded by and is supported by our community. If you value our commitment to the highest standards of responsible journalism and are able to do so, please consider making your gift of support today.
