Description
The memoir Emmanuel Cooper (1938-2012) wrote against the clock, edited and footnoted by his partner. It is full of surprises, reminding us, for example, that ceramics was one of the key counter-culture activities of the 1960s and had real moral and political heft. It takes in Cooper’s creative responses to ceramic history and practice, to the committed left, to class struggles and to queer art and politics. The volume constitutes a fascinating account of his career, covering his passion for folk art, insights into his work at the Royal College of Art and his editorship of the internationally acclaimed Ceramic Review magazine. 

. . . it braids together a life that was fiercely individual and also emblematic of a time and a place. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
