Isn’t it nice when a book finds you, rather than the other way around? This happened to me with this one, on a day where I was feeling disconnected and despondent. Tempest, a poet and performer, published this pamphlet during the pandemic, and three years later their wisdom still holds. Tempest reminds us that creativity is the pathway to connection, a counter to the numbness and despair that seems to have a grip on all of us these days. Buy this and read it in one sitting. I promise you’ll feel better.

Honest, tender and written with piercing clarity, On Connection
is a call to arms that speaks to a universal yet intimate truth.
