On The Precipice

By

In this Bomblog piece, Sarah Gerard ruminates on choice, relationships, Occupy, and existentialism while taking a closer look at Alexander Maksik’s You Deserve Nothing (which you can find Rumpus reviewed here).

“Choice is separate from anguish, from desire, from will, from action. It is an interstitial space; it is the crest of one cliff reaching toward the crest of another. It is, as Gilad says, “as if [we] were on the precipice of something.” Stepping off, we can fall, or we can fly.”
