Strangers. Essays on the Human and Nonhuman
In Strangers, Rebecca Tamás 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’, Tamás’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, Tamás’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 Tamás’s poetry and criticism has been published in ‘The White Review,’ ‘The Chicago Review,’ ‘Some Such,’ The London Review of Books’, and ‘Granta’, amongst others. She is the editor, with Sarah Shin, of ‘Spells: Occult Poetry for the 21st Century’, published by Ignota Books. [publisher's note]
