"We are the rebels asking for the storm, and believing that truth is only to be found in an endless search. Two years of prison for Pussy Riot is our tribute to a destiny that gave us sharp ears, allowing us to sound the note A when everyone else is used to hearing G flat."
In an extraordinary exchange of letters, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Ziek and imprisoned Pussy Riot member, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, discuss artistic subversion, political activism, and the future of democracy via the ideas of Hegel, Deleuze, Nietzsche, and even Laurie Anderson. Touching, erudite, sharp, and worldly, their correspondence unfolds with poetic urgency.
'Such passion, in a man whose work forms a shaky, cartoon rope-bridge between the minutiae of popular culture and the big abstract problems of existence, is invigorating, entertaining and expanding enquiring minds around the world.' - Daily Telegraph
'The thinker of choice for Europe's young intellectual vanguard.' - Sean O'Hagan, Observer
