How People You Don't Know Can Transform YouBook - 2016
When Strangers Meet argues for the pleasures and transformative possibilities of talking to people you dont́ know. In luminous prose, Stark shows how talking to strangers wakes you up. Threaded throughout are powerful vignettes from Starkś own lifelong practice of talking to strangers and documenting brief encounters, along with a deep exploration of the dynamics of where, how, and why strangers come together. Stark renders visible the hidden processes by which we decide who to greet and trust in passing, and the unwritten rules by which these encounters operate. When Strangers Meet teaches readers how to start talking to strangers and includes adventurous challenges for those who dare.
