By Ivan Coyote
Writer and performer Ivan Coyote has spent decades on the road, telling stories around the world. Along the way, Ivan has kept a file of the most special communications received from readers and audience members—letters, Facebook messages, emails, soggy handwritten notes tucked under the windshield wiper of their truck after a gig. Then came spring 2020, and, like artists everywhere, Coyote was grounded by the pandemic, all their planned events cancelled. The energy of a live audience, a performer's lifeblood, was suddenly gone. But with this loss came an opportunity for a different kind of connection. Those letters that had long piled up could finally begin to be answered.
Care Of combines the most powerful of these letters with Ivan's responses, creating a body of correspondence of startling intimacy, breathtaking beauty, and heartbreaking honesty and openness. Taken together, they become an affirming and joyous reflection on many of the themes central to Coyote's celebrated work—compassion and empathy, family fragility, non-binary and trans identity, and the unending beauty of simply being alive—and a giant love letter to the idea of human connection, and the power of truly listening to each other.Hardcover: 256 pages
