The essays in this collection often begin with a single daily encounter, be that a photograph, a passage of text, or even a memory. From these Moyra Davey draws fascinating and unlikely connections, linking one subject to another, whilst touching on the disparate thoughts and writings of artists and writers such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Jean Genet, Virginia Woolf, Janet Malcolm, Chantal Akerman, and Roland Barthes. Both elliptical and direct, clearheaded and personal, through these layering narratives Davey reveals the thorny yet nourishing relationship between art and life.

Moyra Davey is a New York-based artist working predominately in the fields of photography, filmmaking, and writing. Her work is held in major public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Tate Modern in London. She is a 2020 recipient of the John S. Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship.
