The Mother of All Questions

The Mother of All Questions

"Is there anything that Rebecca Solnit can’t speak about with shrewd intelligence and clarity? I mean, she could lecture me on the molecular structure of Neptune’s moons and I’d be completely enraptured. However, it is perhaps most relevant to the political climate in this country that her latest collection of essays is a further exploration on gender and sexuality. There isn’t much more that I need to say about this book, except you will be a better and smarter person after having read it, and as tempting as it is to immerse oneself in the study of a distant planets right now, we should all feel deeply grateful that we have courageous writers like Solnit illuminating the injustices of our world."
