"One of the most daring of contemporary writers in the genre." -Norton Anthology of Nature Writing "[Hay's] books about Cape Cod belong in the company of Thoreau, Donald Culross Peattie, Henry Beston, and Rachel Carson." -Robert Taylor, The Boston Globe "Hay's new book, published in his 83rd year, is autumnal in spirit and in substance. . . . The essence of this enterprise is a kind of prayer, eloquent and deeply felt." -Richard Todd, Civilization "[Hay] is, to my mind, without question this country's greatest living nature writer. . . . He writes out of such a profoundly poetic impulse that he cannot help but produce prose of a high literary order." -Robert Finch, The Cape Codder "Hay loses himself in details, describing the minute play of light through grasses, the reflection of a water bug on the rocks of a stream bottom, the fungi on fallen trees that begin to glow with an eerie luminescence. . . . [He] is not only the observer of what most of us don't see, but of what we may never get a chance to see." -David Cline, Hartford Advocate "In the Company of Light shares with considerable humility the well-honed insights of a man rich in the wisdom of age and observation of nature." -Nancy Grape, Maine Sunday Telegram John Hay is author of The Great Beach (winner of the John Burroughs Prize), The Run, and A Beginner's Faith in Things Unseen, among many other books. He lives in Brewster, on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and in Bremen, Maine.
