Praise for: “From the moment I received Sara Ahmed’s new work, living a feminist life, I couldn't put it down Ahmed lifts us higher.” — Bell hooks "I read living a feminist life with a deep sense of recognition. This is a book that feminists will find illuminating—acutely painful at times, but mostly profoundly insightful a beautifully written, smartly provocative book that belongs on our shelves, in our classrooms and in our daughters’ hands." — Chandra talpade Mohanty, author of feminism without borders: Decolonizing theory, practicing solidarity description: in Living a feminist life, Sara Ahmed shows how feminist theory is generated from everyday life and the ordinary experiences of being a feminist at home and at work. Building on legacies of feminist of colour scholarship in particular, Ahmed offers a poetic and personal meditation on how feminists become estranged from worlds they critique—often by naming and calling attention to problems—and how feminists learn about worlds from their efforts to transform them. Ahmed also provides her most sustained commentary on the figure of the feminist killjoy introduced in her earlier work while showing how feminists create inventive solutions as forming support systems survive the shattering experiences of facing the walls of racism and sexism. The killjoy survival kit and killjoy manifesto, with which the book concludes, supply practical tools for how to live a feminist life, thereby strengthening the ties between the inventive creation of feminist theory and living a life that sustains it.
