In this collection of interviews, Derrick Jensen discusses the destructive dominant culture with ten people who have devoted their lives to undermining it.

Whether it is Carolyn Raffensperger and her radical approach to public health, or Thomas Berry on perceiving the sacred; be it Kathleen Dean Moore reminding us that our bodies are made of mountains, rivers, and sunlight; or Vine Deloria asserting that our dreams tell us more about the world than science ever can, the activists and philosophers interviewed in How Shall I Live My Life? each bravely present a few of the endless forms that resistance can and must take.

Interviews include:

  • George Draffan
  • Jesse Wolf Hardin
  • Vine Deloria
  • David Abram
  • Steven Wise
  • Jan Lundberg
  • David Edwards
  • Thomas Berry
  • Carolyn Raffensperger
  • and Kathleen Dean Moore

About the Author:

Anthony Lukas Book Prize), and Walking on Water, among many others. Jensen’s writing has been described as “breaking and mending the reader’s heart” (Publishers Weekly). Author, teacher, activist, and leading voice of uncompromising dissent, he regularly stirs auditoriums across the country with revolutionary spirit. He lives in Crescent City, California.

Reviews:

Derrick Jensen is a rare and original voice of sanity in a chaotic world. He has wisdom and wit, grace and style, and is a wonderful guide to a good life beautifully lived.

–Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States

Derrick Jensen is a public intellectual who both breaks and mends the reader’s heart.

–Frances Moore Lappe, author of Diet For A Small Planet

Derrick Jensen is a man driven to stare without flinching at the baleful design of our culture… His analysis of our culture’s predilection for hatred and destruction will rattle your bones.

–Daniel Quinn, author of Ishmael
