THE BANK TELLER explores the desire within each of us to overcome our isolation and to see and be seen by the other in a relation of authentic connectedness. In a series of strikingly original essays, Gabel shows how "the opening up of desire" requires a fundamental challenge to our existing social institutions and a new political strategy that invents new forms of work, friendship, and community. "The ideas you read here will...eventually...become the major ideas shaping the thinking of all those who wish to heal and transform the world"--Rabbi Michael Lerner. "In this insightful and provocative essay collection, Gabel...reveals the limits of a world in which human regard is measured only by the commercial value of one's approval ratings"--Patricia Williams.
