Scenes of tribal life possess a certain beauty and innocence, and this volume is made all the more poignant by the fact that [Rockefeller] did not get to continue his work, for he disappeared while on his next expedition. The documents reproduced here are a fascinating first look at the considerable talent of this anthropologist with a camera.Black & White Magazine

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
