The Bear


DUE IN FEBRUARY Ancient in its rhythm and content, Andrew Krivak’s The Bear reads as a folktale from an entirely possible, fast-approaching future. The lives that may very well be lived by the last of us are lyrically and lovingly articulated across these pages.  A vital connection with our surroundings and the forgotten wisdom we have lost over many generations of rapid development are brought to the forefront in this work. Old ways of survival and storytelling are thoughtfully reawakened and practiced by the creatures that yet remain within. Mankind is remembered by the creatures of the forest and thoughtfully cared for in our death throes. Recommended by Jack
