Description

Jeremy Fernando's prose - or perhaps we should say, poetry - builds effortlessly on the traces of deconstructive thought, feminist insights, and transgressive English literature. Being itself only hesitantly devoted to the conventions of academic writing, Fernando manages to show that faith and loyalty, but also doubt and disloyalty, are always co-operative in what is often too hastily expressed with the simple phrase "I love you." In doing so, Fernando's writing captures the essentially beautiful aspect of the hopeful awaiting and the necessary blindness that love, as well as such a writing, engenders, as it seeks to open up to the mysteries of human existence and even of existence as such. This work then, like his others, contains wonderful admissions of affection to the work of Derrida, Cixous, Agamben, Barthes, Bataille, and various identifiable and unidentifiable others, strung together in what finally constitutes a riveting read.
