I Love Shopping by Ren Cook
Ren Cook’s I Love Shopping brings the specificities of relationships into relief, creating an expanse in which it is the things which assert that an orchid is different from a scientist or a ballerina are also the characteristics which underpin their commonality. Based in a fantastic world of speakers which could be anyone, Cook invites readers to place themselves inside the minds of the entire population of the world, be it an ancient rock, a child, a rose bush, honeysuckle, or the last of a particular type of orchid, eaten by a skunk in the night.
