The dangers of apathy

Post election, it's time to read Bryher's Visa for Avalon. As an introduction, check out Margaret Atwood's review and essay in The New York Review of Books, and Azar Nafisi's enthusiasm about the book -- placed right on the front cover, where it belongs: "Visa for Avalon is a testament to the power of fiction. It illuminates the truth at the heart of what is commonly called reality..." The dangers of apathy? We are living those dangers right now.
