“Maureen Burdock’s artwork is beautiful; you just wish to touch and hold those snails. Yes, one must dig deep to forgive distant parents and live with one’s history. But also to know and accept love.” —Miriam Katin, author of We Are On Our Own and Letting It Go

In the spirit of Nietzsche, the book opens a conversation with Stengers through multiple channels: written text by Jeremy Fernando; paintings by Maureen Burdock; Mariane Klettenhofer's layout which brings both together whilst maintaining their singularities. Thus, a triptych of responses: all disparate yet always also with Stengers; quite possibly in an attempt to respond to the possibility of a community that she calls for.
