Like Thel, the book is a dynamic force refusing to be defined or boxed, and so the reading becomes an act of self understanding and creation.

Synopsis

Praise for Anne Waldman:

"Waldman brings her wild, oracular voice to the environmental questions that currently bedevil us."—Booklist

From "Citadels Thel Leaves Ringing":

We got to Mars. We circle asteroids with a strange anticipation. We go interstellar. We like the sound of wormhole. Its magic. Thel without footprint, without trace, desiccated, desolate, nothing around, nugatory. Thel who talks with worm. Thel a figment in the mind of becoming-in-life, of potential, of not-becoming-yet in-mind, just got dreamed up, a proposal is Thel's gambit for one who would be cautious. Caution trumps curious.
