"More Than Things" is a collection of essays on a variety of political, cultural, and literary issues, all linked by Margaret Randall's attention to power: its use, misuse, and impact on how we live our lives. There are texts on sex, fashion, food, LGBT rights, automobiles, forgiving, women's self-image, writing, books, and more. Two of the essays provide glimpses into present-day Cuba and Tunisia. She reflects on her family; her romantic partners; and the revolutionaries, writers, artists, and activists she has known personally and admired: Roque Dalton, Meridel LeSueur, and Haydee Santamaria.
Randall's writings move in unexpected directions, evoked by the "things" and ideas in her life: objects picked up around the world, her children's names, family heirlooms, artistic practices, dreams, poems, and memories. Elegantly weaving together the personal and the political, "More Than Things" is a tour de force by one of America's most formidable and elegiac writers and political activists.
