Indeed, the exchanges with the thinker are on desire and drift, the two perennials that shame has long manoeuvred and kept under its command. They at once reveal and critique the human word that has deftly imagined and built impressive memorials for shame by stacking up customary fractions hewn out of the mystique of desire, and laying out guarded passages extracted from the antediluvian drift of being. The truth of revolution pervading this collection is urgent. It lives in the epiphanic moment of our meeting our shame and abandoning it. Between our repressed past and unattained future, it arouses our minds into the profundity of desire; beyond its engagement with our bodies, it lends our spirit an immeasurable drift.
