Anne Boyer's masterful, genre-defying collection Handbook of Disappointed Fate is a shot in the arm, a theorization of and experimentation in a more vibrant sociality, an interrogation of the age-old question "What Is To Be Done?" and an investigation of whether art and literature can do at least some of it. Boyer's observations and articulations of how it feels to live in late-late-the-globe-is-warming-capitalism, her contributions to the ever-shifting, always exciting lyric essay tradition, her topographies of better social worlds, are vital. For fans of Maggie Nelson, for those who continue despite fate's incorrigible disappointments, for communists with feelings.
