Praise

“Since Walter Benjamin, we have come to view the fragment as an eminently modern form of writing. Isabelle Graw’s In Another World shows us why. In crisp and striking vignettes, this book shows how self-scrutiny and minute observation of the world intermesh and form the dense web of her analysis. This is a unique and original book, literary, psychological, and sociological all at once.”   
—Eva Illouz, author of The End of Love: A Sociology of Negative Relations
 
“Writing in the aftermath of her parents’ deaths, Isabelle Graw examines aspects of her daily life with the same deft intelligence that she’s brought to her studies of visual art and critical theory. These ‘notes’ find Graw in midlife, an urban professional with a partner, an ex-husband, and a child, attempting to navigate a course between social obligations, inner voice, and creative necessity. Blindingly frank, she addresses the questions that envelop her days: work life, the arrival of refugees in Germany, art exhibitions and grief, electoral and family politics. In Another World is both a literary work and a philosophical experiment. Subtly, Graw reveals how impressions and beliefs arise out of circumstance.”
—Chris Kraus, author of Summer of Hate and Social Practices
