About: All is Leaf is John Price's fifth book of creative nonfiction, and picks up many of the central themes that have drawn readers to his earlier work-parenting, nature, childhood, community, spirituality and the writing life. It also frequently uses the humorous style for which he's become known. But these themes take on new shape and substance in the more experimental approaches found in All is Leaf.

Drawing Inspiration and urgency from the storied Goethe Oak tree at Buchenwald concentration camp—and from the leaf as symbol of all change, growth, and renewal—award-winning essayist John Price explores a multitude of dramatic transformations, in his life and in the fragile world beyond. From his Iowa backyard to the edge of the Arctic Circle, from the forgotten recesses of the body to the far reaches of the solar system, this book demonstrates the ways imagination and informed compassion can, as Price describes it, expand thousand-fold the boundaries of what we might “have naively considered an individual self.”

John T. Price is professor of English and director of the Creative Nonfiction Writing Program at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. He is author of Man Killed by Pheasant and Other Kinships (Iowa, 2012) and the editor of The Tallgrass Prairie Reader (Iowa, 2014). He lives in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
