Strangers: Essays On The Human and NonHuman
by Rebecca Tamas
In Strangers, Rebecca Tamas explores where the human and nonhuman meet, and why this delicate connection just might be the most important relationship of our times. From 'On Watermelon' to 'On Grief', Tamas's essays are exhilarating to read in their radical and original exploration of the links between the environmental, the political, the folkloric and the historical. From thinking stones, to fairgrounds, from colliding planets to transformative cockroaches, Tamas's lyrical perspective takes the reader on a journey between body, land and spirit-exploring a new ecological vision for our fractured, fragile world.
'Rebecca Tamas has the ability to bring together our planet's environment with the ecology of the imagination, to retrieve silent life-forms alongside forgotten intellectual movements. This creates a shifting perspective in her essays which illuminates while giving unexpected pleasure.' — Amit Chaudhur
