Imminent Domains: Reckoning with the Anthropocene invites readers to join a contemplation of survival—our own, and that of the elements that surround us. Using research, lyric prose, and first-hand experiences, Alessandra Naccarato addresses fundamental questions about our modern relationship to nature amidst depictions of landscapes undergoing dramatic transformation.
“There is gorgeous LIFE in these interlacing essays, which refuse to accept life’s brutal and casual devaluation in the name of extractive settler-colonialism. Imminent Domains is a beautiful feat of artistry and truth-saying,” writes Kyo Maclear, author of Birds Art Life.
Naccarato’s playlist features one tune for each essay in the collection, including the introduction and the understory, so you can listen and read along.
