Rehearsals for Living
A captivating and visionary work - part debate, part dialogue, part lively correspondence between two razor-sharp writers who uniquely combine Black and Indigenous perspectives to imagine a way forward for us all.
When the world entered pandemic lockdown in spring 2020, influential authors and activists Robyn Maynard and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson began writing each other letters - a gesture sparked by a desire for kinship and connection in a world shattered by the pandemic, police killings, and climate catastrophe. These letters soon grew into a powerful exchange about where we go from here. In Rehearsals for Living, Maynard and Simpson share an urgent and poetic call to dream up new ways of ordering earthly life.
