LeBlanc, Curtis: Birding in the Glass Age of Isolation
Birding in the Glass Age of Isolation by Curtis LeBlanc (Nightwood Editions, paperback)
Publication Date: September 29, 2020
Publisher Marketing: Birding in the Glass Age of Isolation explores the experience and greater social implications of mental illness, specifically OCD and Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder. It asks the questions: How does anxiety inform both how we act and how we interpret those actions afterwards? How does the fear of retribution from one's own mind lead to miscalculations or total inaction? Finally, how is one's self-worth effaced in the balancing act between trying to do the right thing and doing nothing at all?
