Kissed by a Fox: And Other Stories of Friendship in Nature
Bluestockings (172 Allen St., Manhattan)
In “Kissed by a Fox: And Other Stories of Friendship in Nature,” author and earth advocate Priscilla Stuckey tells the tale of nature as a human possession, a machine that needs to be bent to human use and will. How can we understand this urge to sing the animals out of existence, to take away their stories? Drawing from ecology, biology, psychology, Christian theology, Buddhist teachings, and feminist theory, Stuckey leads us to question the larger cultural stories we tell about nature. Stuckey holds a PhD in religious studies and feminist theory from Berkeley’s Graduate Theological Union and teaches environmental humanities in the graduate programs of Prescott College.
