Becoming the Sound of Bees

$14.50

  • Description

    This book starts out listening for bees, and hears none, the listener being something of a pupa in a cocoon on the early pages. Honeycombs begin not as sources of Swiftian sweetness and light, but sloughs of despond. Honeybees themselves, initially silent, burn like fire at the stake.  The planet and its atmosphere, thus un-beed, become a single organism whose surface swarms with flotsam, jetsam and scabs reincarnating as silverfish. This book hums louder and more beautifully than any of our world’s collapsing colonies.
    -Tom Bradley
