Making Love with the Land: Essays by Joshua Whitehead

Making Love with the Land: Essays by Joshua Whitehead

From University of Minnesota Press:

A moving and deeply personal excavation of Indigenous beauty and passion in a suffering world. In prose that is evocative and sensual, unabashedly queer and visceral, raw and autobiographical, Joshua Whitehead writes of an Indigenous body in pain, coping with trauma. Intellectually audacious and emotionally compelling, Whitehead shares his devotion to the world in which we live and brilliantly—even joyfully—maps his experience on the land that has shaped stories, histories, and bodies from time immemorial.


"Joshua Whitehead's Making Love with the Land is defiantly artful. The essays are alert to so much of the beauty and the terror of the world. I imagine they cost a great deal to write. While reading, I was entirely overcome with gratitude. How lucky we all are to witness Whitehead's kinetic thinking as well to be in pain with him. A truly dazzling feat of heart, analysis, and sentence-making." — Billy-Ray Belcourt, author of This Wound Is a World and A History of My Brief Body
