Summary
"Returning to the powerful single-essay format of I'm Afraid of Men, Vivek Shraya summons her signature wisdom to reflect on a topic she's uniquely qualified to explore: reinvention. Growing up surrounded by Hindu lore, Vivek Shraya first learned to model change after gods who assumed various forms and humans who believed in being born again and again. As a child she worshiped Sathya Sai Baba, an Indian guru who claimed to be the reincarnation of a beloved spiritual master. As a teen she adored Madonna, an idol and a shapeshifter in her own right. But after enacting her own transformations--motivated by both survival and creative expression--she came to see change itself as sacred. People Change is a thought-provoking meditation on reinvention from an artist who has actively refused a single, static shape in both her career and in her personal life. With great intelligence and candour, she mines her own experience to get to the heart of what motivates us to change and what limitations and cultural myths trap us in place. What emerges is a lesson in embracing our multiplicity, honouring the many different versions of ourselves, and celebrating the beauty of transformation, both inside and out."--
