Reviews

"Part dream, part provocation ... (with) a wonky yet infectious hopefulness." --The New Yorker

"We understand that an era is ending, but we do not know what will happen after it. Maybe changing words from 70 thousand years ago helps us cope with reality." --Vogue Poland

"A fascinating collection of non-English or newly invented words that impart something of the complexities of everyday life in an era of warming skies and oceans, mass degradation, precarity, and insecurity, each of which also helps map a possible future." --Science Magazine
