At once a beautifully poetic memoir and an exploration of the various ways we live in the world, "A Language Older Than Words" explains violence as a pathology that touches every aspect of our lives and indeed affects all aspects of life on Earth. This chronicle of a young mans drive to transcend domestic abuse offers a challenging look at our worldwide sense of community and how we can make things better.
"Singular, compelling and courageously honest, this book is more than just a poignant memoir of a harrowingly abusive childhood. It relates the extraordinary journey of one man striving to save his own spirit and our planet's . . . His visceral, biting observations always manage to lead back to his mantra: "Things don't have to be the way they are."
Jensen's ground-breaking first book clarifies the very real parallels between human-human abuse and human environmental degradation.
