Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

A wry, cinematic tour through multiple forms: the poem, the vignette, the play--all set in our laughably lamentable contemporary world.

In three poems, one play, and three short stories, St phane Bouquet's Common Life offers a lively, searching vision of contemporary life, politics, and sociality. At a moment at which the fabric of everyday social life is increasingly threatened across the globe, this book is a necessary exercise of the literary imagination: what, it asks, does it mean to inhabit the world together today? With humor and sincerity, Common Life imagines the utopias of collectivity, friendship and love that might enable hope for the present and the future.
