Reviews

"A remarkable interlacing of ambitious theoretical enquiry and raw personal memoir, Egress asks why collective thought and practice today is so broken that it takes a lacerating calamity to rediscover something like community. This is a work of thought in motion and in emotion, searching, deeply wounded but undefeated." -- Robin Mackay, Urbanomic "The dead return to us as our world falls apart. Love and loss ripple into our lives and test our integrity every day. Brutal and provocative, this book is a haunting elegy to Mark's crystalline mind. He sat on the shores of endless worlds" -- Mark Stewart, The Pop Group "Through his Xenogothic blog, and now this often touching book, few have done as much to channel, ruminate around and speculate beyond the spectre of Mark Fisher." -- Steve Goodman (Kode9) "Egress is a remarkable (and inventive) tribute to Mark Fisher's capacities as a thinker, writer, and, perhaps most importantly, teacher. Filled with brilliant new insights into Mark's philosophies and contexts, Matt Colquhoun's book is at once a moving, deeply human act of mourning, as well as a call-to-arms to bring forward the future that Mark's writings make possible."-- Hua Hsu, The New Yorker "By turns a deeply personal memoir, a scholarly and readable introduction to Mark Fisher's work, and a powerful extension of the apparatus of Fisher's thought to new application. Colquhoun perfectly captures the feeling of despair in a time when political and personal hopelessness is ubiquitous, but shows a way through it... this work is very necessary now. This book illuminates the important work of trying to figure out how to mourn: privately, publicly, personally, institutionally, politically...while maintaining a deep connection to Fisher's work and a respect for the tools it can give us to make it through." -- Michelle Spiedel "Colquhoun shuttles along the filaments of Mark Fisher's work with scholarly and deeply personal insights offering not only an introduction to his thought but a sense how we might apply it in the contemporary moment. I can't recommend this book enough." -- Laura Grace Ford, author of Savage Messiah
