Product Details

From the author of The Empathy Exams comes a profound
meditation on isolation, longing and the conflicts faced by all those
who choose to tell true stories about the lives of others.

‘Intelligent, compassionate, and so fiercely, prodigiously brave.
This is the essay at its creative, philosophical best’ – Eleanor Catton,
author of The Luminaries on The Empathy Exams

A profound exploration of the oceanic depths of longing and obsession, Make It Scream, Make It Burn
is a book about why and how we tell stories. It takes the reader deep
into the lives of strangers – from a woman healed by the song of ‘the
loneliest whale in the world’ to a family convinced their child is a
reincarnation of a lost pilot – and asks how we can bear witness to the
changing truths of others’ lives while striving to find a deeper
connection to the complexities of our own.
