In the midst of spiraling ecological devastation, multispecies feminist theorist Donna J. Haraway offers provocative new ways to reconfigure our relations to the earth and all its inhabitants. She eschews referring to our current epoch as the Anthropocene, preferring to conceptualize it as what she calls the Chthulucene, as it more aptly and fully describes our epoch as one in which the human and nonhuman are inextricably linked in tentacular practices. The Chthulucene, Haraway explains, requires sym-poiesis, or making-with, rather than auto-poiesis, or self-making. Learning to stay with the trouble of living and dying together on a damaged earth will prove more conducive to the kind of thinking that would provide the means to building more livable futures. Theoretically and methodologically driven by the signifier SF—string figures, science fact, science fiction, speculative feminism, speculative fabulation, so far—Staying with the Trouble further cements Haraway's reputation as one of the most daring and original thinkers of our time.

Abstract : Drawing on fieldwork in Cape Town, this essay moves transversally across different settings—situated assemblages made up of enunciations, actions, and codes—in order to explore "that which holds a society together", which is the institution in the broadest sense. Confronted with the violence of inequality produced and maintained by enduring spatial structures, complexity, hybridity, and ambiguity come across as signs of hope. The main case brought up in this essay—the Edith Stephens nature reserve in Phillippi on the Cape Flats—is put forward as a promise for the future, whose ambiguous borders and oblique rationality provide means to "stay with the trouble" in starkly impoverished surroundings. It discloses the emergence of a "minor architecture" that, in taking its material from the alleged margins, differs from previous readings.

In The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, visionary author Ursula K. Le Guin retells the story of human origin by redefining technology as a cultural carrier bag rather than a weapon of domination. Hacking the linear, progressive mode of the Techno-Heroic, the Carrier Bag Theory of human evolution proposes: 'before the tool that forces energy outward, we made the tool that brings energy home.' Prior to the preeminence of sticks, swords and the Hero's long, hard, killing tools, our ancestors' greatest invention was the container: the basket of wild oats, the medicine bundle, the net made of your own hair, the home, the shrine, the place that contains whatever is sacred. The recipient, the holder, the story. The bag of stars. This influential essay opens a portal to terra ignota: unknown lands where the possibilities of human experience and knowledge can be discovered anew. With a new introduction by Donna Haraway, the eminent cyberfeminist, author of the revolutionary A Cyborg Manifesto and most recently, Staying with the Trouble and Manifestly Haraway. With images by Lee Bul, a leading South Korean feminist artist who had a retrospective at London's Hayward Gallery in 2018.

CHARLENE is an Eastern Kentucky coalminer's daughter who vows not to drink like her father, swears she will not be stuck in a tumultuous marriage but finds herself in those very situations she vowed would never happen. At a very early age, Charlene falls in love with the mine foreman's wild, irresponsible, yet incredibly handsome son, discovers she is pregnant at seventeen, and learns about life through extreme sorrow. Charlene grows close to BIRDIE, the local weathered old hillbilly, who smokes, drinks, cusses, plays poker like a man, and takes her on a cruise. They have the time of their lives, and the pages are ripe with humor from the episodes of the two cruising on a luxury liner. When Charlene returns, she is traumatized by her husband once again, and leaves in the middle of the night to begin a new life. She moves outside of Cincinnati on the Kentucky side, finds a job, and a small house. Charlene meets ROSIE, her next-door neighbor. As the two become friends, Charlene is introduced to KARMA, Rosie's niece. Eventually all three women develop lifelong, deeper friendships, bringing joy into each other's lives. With baby steps and relapses, we learn that overcoming a past can be done, that humor makes life bearable, and that working, struggling mothers of low income remain poor partly because the government structure completely ignores them. When Fallen Angels Fly is a thoroughly enjoyable book reading experience, replete with laughter, tears, triumph, and tragedy.

Funerals are strange things. Kitty hadn't really wanted to go to this one - a old school friend she hadn't seen for years - and she hadn't bargained for the way it made her think of the past. In particular, it made her think of the baby she had given birth to when she was eighteen, the baby her parents had insisted she give away for adoption. She'd called her Madeleine, and she remembered her every day, what she was like, if she was happy. But now, reminded of how cruelly short life can be, she had to see her - just to make sure she'd done the right thing. Life had turned out pretty well for Kitty. Secure in her marriage, with her two teenage children and a house within sound and sight of the Cornish surf, she counted herself among the lucky ones. But the hole left by that first baby wasn't getting any smaller, and she decided to make the first, tentative steps towards filling it - although she, and all her family, were quite unprepared for the upheaval which followed.
