Product description

This is a book that brings fresh insights to the role of language in our lives and opens up new dimensions for creative writing. Nicki Jackowska moves effortlessly between the spiritual, political and emotional, yet never loses the sight of the essential connection between idea and practice. This radical exploration of words and their use has at its core a critique of society at large. It raises challenging questions and introduces multiple perspectives on the life of language, in both the personal and public spheres.
