Essays of compassion and conviction... Jamison covers a wide range of subjects with deep empathy and intelligence. . . Perhaps all writing is an innate, primal scream, and Jamison - astutely - knows and embodies this with compassion and vigour
Sinéad Gleeson, Irish Times
Railing, roaring essays on humanity... Jamison has time for everyone... excellent
Wide-ranging... [Jamison's] language is typically lush... [she] picks excellent topics... Jamison walks a careful line between scepticism and compassion - never sacrificing her subjects' dignity... fascinating

The authors discuss the multiplicity of the self, the idea of necessity, and how to work with what you lack.
