Everyone knows Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, but few brave souls have actually read it. And that’s okay! James Bezerra went to the woods and read it for you. In this series of essays, travelogues, and histories he reports back, not just on that most American of books, but on what it might have to say about the lives we live now. The result is a cunning dissection of modernity. From tiny houses to civil disobedience, from Disneyland to late capitalism to classic horror movies, Bezerra reimagines Walden as a work of contemporary social commentary. It is funny. It is snarky. It is thoughtful. It is not always so funny. Written during a 2016 artist-in-residency with the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, this book celebrates nature and fears it a little. It celebrates Thoreau and lampoons him a little. It asks you to set aside your phone for a little while and spend some time out in the woods.
