Abstract:

"'Life in a Field' is a comedy set inside our changing climate. In the story, a girl and a donkey become friends, and then, decide to marry time. A lyric fable, 'Life in a Field' intersperses slow-moving, cinematic paragraphs in image-driven, sensual prose with three folios of images by the photographer Young Suh. Introspection, wish, dream, and memory take on the character of events. A narrative voice speaks from a distance, but does so with candor, attempting to find a path through our daily and familiar strife, towards what remains of beauty and pleasure. In clear, exacting sentences, 'Life in a Field' attempts, against all evidence, to reverse our accelerating destruction of the natural world, reminding us of "the cold clarity we need to continue on this earth.""--
