In Essays from Essex, Sydney Williams shares new musings on family, nature, literature, and the miracles to be found in everyday life. Following on the heels of his earlier collections, One Man’s Family: Growing up in Peterborough and Other Stories and Notes from Old Lyme: Life on the Marsh and Other Essays, the nearly two dozen entries in this book range from stories of growing up in the 1940s and ’50s, Christmases past, and remembrances of friends and family, to observations on the joys of motherhood, the return of Atlantic sturgeon to the Connecticut River, the pleasure of reading children’s books, and the ongoing surprises that come with aging.

With a clear, lyrical, and engaging style, Williams’s writing has been described as “good-humored yet profound.” Essays from Essex will provide readers with many enjoyable opportunities to pause and reflect briefly on life and the world around us. In addition to numerous photographs, Essays from Essex also includes a half-dozen original drawings and paintings by Williams’s grandson, Alex.
