The most thorough and extensive investigation ever written on the much-beloved writer, The Book of Buechner explores the ways in which Frederick Buechner's writing, particularly his fiction, presents the possibilities of grace in the midst of the ambiguities of human existence and introduces themes of Christian faith. Both long-time readers and neophytes seeking a guide through his writings will delight in the illuminating analysis Dale Brown has to offer. Intelligent and gratifying, The Book of Buechner is a much overdue literary journey through one of the most significant American writers of the last fifty years.
The Alphabet of Grace could be fairly regarded as Buechner's first foray into memoir. ... Frederick Buechner, The Eyes of the Heart: A Memoir of the Lost and Found (San Francisco: HarperSanFrancisco, 1999), 180. Hereafter cited as EH.
