Will Dowd—Areas of Fogaos_5_2018_dowd_square


Composed over the course of one year when Will Dowd kept a weather journal to combat writer’s block, this book is “an absolutely beautiful read.” (WBUR)   Dowd presents a collection of lyric essays wherein musings about New England weather expand, becoming poetic, philosophic forays into literature, art, history, and human nature. His “soulful, precise essays . . . are a string of expertly cut and polished gems.” (Carlo Rotella) A local writer and artist, Will Dowd has been a Boston College Presidential Scholar, an MIT John Lyons Fellow, and a New York University Jacob K. Javits Fellow. (Author photo © Sharona Jacobs)
