Radical Hope


When award-winning novelists, poets, political thinkers and activists including Junot Díaz, Mona Eltahawy,  Karen Joy Fowler, Katie Kitamura, Hari Kunzru, Celeste Ng, Viet Thanh Nguyen,  Claire Messud,  Lisa See and Jane Smiley come together to write a collection of letters, you know it’s for an important cause. In the wake of Trump’s election, Radical Hope is a collection of love letters – to ancestors, to children five generations from now, to strangers in supermarket queues, to any and all who feel discouraged by contemporary politics. Compiled by Carolina de Robertis, this collection of letters is urgent, important, and most of all inspiring. Read on for just a small selection of the sentiments and truths exposed in the book, then get a copy, read each letter in full and consider who you would pass your message of hope on to.
