Peripathetic : notes on (un)belonging

Tan, Cher2024
Books
There was something so captivating about always being on the edge, on that shaky precipice of promise - something new and something cool was just lurking around the corner and we'd arrive at it if we kick around long enough. Peripathetic is about shit jobs. About being who you are and who you aren't online. About knowing a language four times. About living on the interstices. About thievery. About wanting. About the hyperreal. About weirdness. Cher Tan's essays are as non-linear as her life, as she travels across borders that are simultaneously tightening and blurring. In luminous and inventive prose, they look beyond the performance of everyday life, seeking answers that continually elude. Paying homage to the many outsider artists, punks, drop-outs and rogue philosophers who came before, this book is about the resistance of orthodoxies - even when it feels impossible.
