The Properties of Perpetual Light

The Properties of Perpetual Light


Author: Julian Aguon | Hardcover

Part memoir, part manifesto, The Properties of Perpetual Light is a collection of soulful ruminations about love, loss, struggle, resilience, and power--a coming-of-age story and a call for justice.

The Properties of Perpetual Light is an homage to the work of the activist-writer, which author Julian Aguon describes as the work of bearing witness, wrestling with the questions of one's day, telling children the truth. With prose and poetry both bracing and quiet, Aguon weaves together stories from his childhood in the villages of Guam with searing political commentary. Throughout the book, Aguon grapples with one heart-breaking loss after another by immersing himself in the beauty of his island, the magic of Micronesia, and the wisdom of his favorite books and elders.
