A Primer for Forgetting is a remarkable experiment in scholarship, autobiography, and social criticism. It forges a new vision of forgetfulness by assembling fragments of art and writing from the ancient world to the modern, from Hesiod to Borges, to Elizabeth Bishop, to Desmond Tutu, weighing the potential boons forgetfulness might offer the present moment as a creative and political force.
