“Ariel Gore is wise, brave and funny.” —Harriet Lerner, PhD, author, The Dance with Anger
People concerned about global cataclysms still must grapple with the private ones. This is a book about personal apocalypses: When our gardens die, when all is lost, when our hearts feel ruined, we the people risewe soften ourselves to meet the chaos. In the rubble of it all, our worst fears realized, we build some small fire and warm our hands. And as night falls, we see that the moon and stars still rise, too, with or without us, and we begin to relax. The People's Apocalypse is 45 essays about how we prepare, respond, and recover to the large and small endings that mark our time on this earth."
