The Stone World (2022)
Joel Agee
"Young Pira, Joel Agee's deep boy hero, asks the meaning of words, and the answers lead us to reflect on our own thinking and loving, on the ways in which friendship can be betrayed and repaired, on the history we are living, on the power of the imagination to go where thinking stops."
