I started reading this book and I just couldn't put it down! I was struck by the flow and wonderful looseness of the prose....The book sets out to unsettle certainty and it certainly succeeds. -- Robyn Langhurst, (University of Waikato)
Bronwyn Davies rewrites the academy in this exploration of body/landscape relations. She takes us on journeys intimate and global, from a dusty rural valley town in Australia to texts and contexts across the world and beyond our imaginings. In the process, Davies' conversations transform our limited understandings of body/mind, East/West, written/spoken, literature/life. At a time when the dry discourse of poststructuralism has become stale on our tongue, Davies brilliantly revives language and scholarly work and shows us the tantalizing possibilities of our shared stories. This work, like language itself, is alive, vibrant, strong. -- Lorri Neilsen, (Mount Saint Vincent University)
