Sometimes the smallest details tell us the most. In their moving and memorable books, these writers draw on intimate interactions of ordinary families in extraordinary circumstances. They share the craft of writing that is based in truth, the necessity of going to dark places, and the magic of the cracks where the light gets in.

Terkadang, detail terkecil pun mampu menggambarkan hal paling jelas. Dalam buku-buku mereka yang telah tersebar luas dan mengesankan, para penulis ini menggambarkan interaksi intim dari keluarga-keluarga sederhana di lingkungan yang luar biasa. Mereka berbagi seni menulis yang berdasarkan kebenaran, keharusan untuk menelusuri hal-hal yang menantang, dan keajaiban yang bisa didapat saat pencerahan datang.
