João Biehl on Shaping a Sense of What is Possible

“Life stories do not simply begin and end. They are stories of transformation: they link the present to the past and to a possible future and create lasting ties among subject, scribe, and reader.”

João Biehl, Vita: Life in a Zone of Social Abandonment,
updated edition (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2013), p. 367.
