'A work of sheer brilliance, beauty and bravery' Andrew Sean Greer, author of Less 'Masterly... Her essays have a clarity and prescience that imply a sort of distant, retrospective view, like postcards sent from the near future' New York Times We stare at our phones. We keep multiple tabs open. Our chats and conversations are full of the phrase "Did you see?" The feeling that we're living in the worst of times seems to be intensifying, alongside a desire to know precisely how bad things have gotten. Poet and essayist Elisa Gabbert's The Unreality of Memory consists of a series of lyrical and deeply researched meditations on what our culture of catastrophe has done to public discourse and our own inner lives. In these tender and prophetic essays, she focuses in on our daily preoccupation and favorite pasttime: desperate distraction from disaster by way of a desperate obsession with the disastrous. Moving from public trauma to personal tragedy, from the Titanic and Chernobyl to illness and loss, The Unreality of Memory alternately rips away the facade of our fascination with destruction and gently identifies itself with the age of rubbernecking. A balm, not a burr, Gabbert's essays are a hauntingly perceptive analysis of the anxiety intrinsic in our new, digital ways of being, and also a means of reconciling ourselves to this new world. 'One of those joyful books that send you to your notebook every page or so, desperate not to lose either the thought the author has deftly placed in your mind or the title of a work she has now compelled you to read.' Paris Review

This is absolutely the most amazing book that you will ever read. John is one of the most insightful men on the planet. His discoveries are even more important than the theory of relativity, Newton's laws, and thermodynamics all rolled into one. Atkins explains blackholes, big bangs, how planets go around the sun without anything even resembling gravity (his COW formula), why the speed of light is much greater than 186k in interstellar space, how and why planets give birth to moons, and the real cause of Global warming. The number of the beast is 666 and we are the beast. 6 protons, 6 neutrons, and 6 electrons = carbon. After revealing the secrets of the universe, Atkins goes on to explain why the economy is in dire straits. There is a fix but we need to act soon as the crooks in office won't do it. This book is amazing, shocking, and will forever change the way you see the universe. Sure, it is a small book. It is small because it needs to be. Be the first on your block to know what John knows.
