Van Loon engages with the work of six leading contemporary thinkers and writers Rosi Braidotti, Nancy Holmstrom, Siri Hustvedt, Laura Kipnis, Julia Kristeva and Marina Warner through interrogating and enlivening their ideas on love, play, fear, work, wonder and friendship.

Her journey is intellectual and deeply personal, political and intimate at once. It introduces readers to six extraordinary women whose own deeply thoughtful work has much to offer all of us. They may transform our own views of what it means to live a good life.
