Acknowledgements

 

I’ve been thinking about this topic for seven years (2013–20), and so a great many people and much listening and reading has influenced it. I wish I’d kept a list from the start, but it was some years before I appreciated that this was all forming into a book (if that’s what this is). So this list of those to whom I know I’m especially grateful can’t be complete. But everyone on it has helped and influenced me, often in ways of which they’re unaware (some may wish they hadn’t). My sincere thanks to them all.

And I thank the many people who have invited me to speak at their festivals, conferences and institutions over the years, together with those I’ve met there who’ve been happy to discuss these themes.
