In this collection of writings, Howard Slater improvises around
what Walter Benjamin could have meant by the phrase 'affective
classes'. This 'messianic shard' and its possible implications
leads Slater to develop a therapeutic micro-politics by way of a
mourning for the Workers' Movement and a grappling with the
'becomings of capital'. The essay 'Anomie/Bonhomie' is the keystone
of this book which also features tributary texts and poems drawn
from the past ten years. These supplementary texts approach such
themes as exodus, species-being, surrealist precedents, poetic
language and the possibilities for collective 'affective' practices
to combat capitalism's colonisation of the psyche.
