Poised between poetry and physics, faith and reason, Raymo turns out beautifully written essays in a style somewhere between Loren Eisley and Lewis Thomas. He ponders the science of galaxies. He ties microcosm to macrocosm, moving from a red-winged blackbird to a quasar seen through a back yard telescope. –Publishers Weekly
