BODY PARTS compiles Dylan Trigg’s thinking on subjects as diverse as haunting, agoraphobia, horror, animals, death, and the uncanniness of the human body. At the heart of the book is a phenomenological exploration of the relation between absence and anonymity. For Trigg, the experience of absence cannot be understood in terms of the simple disappearance of things but instead by their reappearance. Whether it be the melancholy of our relation with animals or the memory of a dead friend, absence marks a rupture with the world as we normally understand it. At once a philosophical reflection on the nature of experience, BODY PARTS is also a series of confessions located at the intersection between fiction and memory.
