About this book

The Admen Move on Lhasa

Steven Heighton

Acclaimed fiction writer and poet Steven Heighton confronts our society's growing preference for the virtual — in the media, in our modes of communication, in art, in war — as opposed to the visceral.

In these essays Heighton explores ways of remaining authentically creative and passionately engaged with life in an increasingly artificial world.
