Political violence. Global inequality. Climate catastrophe. It feels like everything is collapsing, and those in power couldn't care less. So what do we do now? How do we begin to build something better, together? 'I am giving Temelkuran's Together to everyone I know. So clear-eyed, frank, wise and joyous! An obligatory book for any human on earth today' Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less In 2020 protest movements across the world revealed the inequalities sewn into the fabric of society. The wildfires that ravaged Australia and California made it clear we are in the middle of a climate catastrophe. The pandemic showed us all just how precarious our economies really are, and the conspiracy theories surrounding the US election proved the same of our democracies. Those in charge do not have the answers. In fact, those in charge, more often that not, are the problem. So, what do we do? In Together: 10 Choices for a Better Now, award-winning political commentator Ece Temelkuran puts forward a compelling new narrative for our current moment, not for some idealised future but for right now, and asks us to make a choice. To choose determination over hope; to embrace fear rather the cold comfort of ignorance; to save our energy for an unwavering attention on those in power and the destructive systems they uphold, rather than wasting time spewing out anger and outrage online. Above all, this book asks you to choose to have faith in the other human beings we share this planet with. This is not about about how or why we messed things up. This is about what kind of world we want to live in, and the choices we must make to get there.
