A fine-tuned, beautiful book that looks with a sharp eye and a generous spirit at one's sense of place as it was in the five years leading up to 2021. And as it is. Now.
So much more than a collection of essays, this is a writer's soul laid bare. Filled with universal experience, every page reveals Sanelli's profound understanding of the strength and resilience of the human spirit.
In Every Little Thing: Small Breakthroughs, Big Mistakes, Endless Lessons, Sanelli proves that a narrative essay can be wise and vulnerable and nail what matters most in our lives, all in the same breath. No one tells-truth with more heart, humor, and accountability. With a voice that speaks of life as it is everyday lived-with joy, calm, worry, and alarm-Sanelli manages to write lyrically in warm, accessible language. One can learn so much from a writer who, wherever she goes she takes her readers along with her, her experiences becoming theirs, as well. These writings will make you miss the Northwest even if you've never been there. Gliding on sentences smooth as stone with the brightness of the author's enthusiasm, this book will delight, challenge, reassure, and steer any reader toward a higher capacity to expand life's smallest moments into our grandest triumphs.
