Paul B. Preciado has the magic ability to fire off imperatives that dont feel bossy, but rather incite us to join him in whatever crackling energy, urgent curiosity, and dynamic nomadism is flowing through him. Reading these chronological missives offers the real pleasure of Preciados company in time, and inspires us not just to stay with our trouble, but to greet it with unstoppable speech, complex solidarity, glitter, and defiance. Maggie Nelson, author of The Argonauts An arresting, bold and moving book about crossing boundaries of body, sex, nation, species and language by an important dissident of dualism. Amia Srinivasan, author of The Right to Sex Like all of us, it turns out, Preciado was born on Uranus and dragged down to earth against his will. The language of that fall from grace wont get us home, but at least Preciado helps us imagine what might. Kevin Brazil, ArtReview
