bell hooks at her best, wandering, thoughtful, and lyrical, writing about subjects dearest to my heart: anarchism (yes, using that word), crafting community, place, racial justice, trauma, relationships with the land, and a shared love for Wendell Berry. This book was nourishing. I read it and felt philosophically more whole, could feel pieces coming together. It's a slow one, with essays on quiltmakers and memory, and not a lot of rage. When the world sucks so hard I am so thankful to have books like this. Nourishing.
