Summary Living on a damaged planet challenges who we are and where we live. This timely anthology puts forward a bold proposal: entangled histories, situated narratives, and thick descriptions offer urgent "arts of living." These essays posit critical and creative tools for survival in a more-than-human Anthropocene. The essays are organized around two key themes that also serve as the publication's two openings: Ghosts, or landscaped haunted by the violences of modernity; and Monsters, or interspecies and intraspecies sociality
Notes Contains two volumes in one; text orientation for both volumes is inverted in relation to each other
