Description

‘Intelligent, compassionate, and so fiercely, prodigiously brave. This is the essay at its creative, philosophical best’ Eleanor Catton, author of The Luminaries on THE EMPATHY EXAMS

A profound exploration of the oceanic depths of longing and obsession, Make It Scream, Make It Burn is a book about why and how we tell stories. It takes the reader deep into the lives of strangers – from a woman healed by the song of ‘the loneliest whale in the world’ to a family convinced their child is a reincarnation of a lost pilot – and asks how we can bear witness to the changing truths of other’s lives while striving to find a deeper connection to the complexities of our own.
