“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Publicity Meeting

 I'm excited. It's twenty-five minutes before my first meeting with Columbia's publicist. I want to get a picture of what they're going to get up to, in order to promote Hell: In Search of a Christian Ecology

If you're of one of the causes the extra one hundred and fifty thousand hits on this blog since I announced this book, I'm so glad you're here and you can really really help me out by telling me more about why you're into the idea of this book. You're more interested in this book than people were interested when I wrote something with Björk. 

I'm talking to my best best people about writing on the back of this. I was taught at school that these were called endorsements and that blurbs were descriptions--but like the word "font" the meaning has shifted over time. ("Font" used to mean the size of what was called the typeface.)
