"The moment seems to spark a sort of dreamy optimism among many of the speakers, as a counterpoint to their default one-upmanship in dystopian despair"

The interest of these conversations is partly their content and partly their tone. They capture that sense of alarm that characterised the first weeks of the crisis, but also the slightly giddy initial novelty of isolation – quiet streets, upended timetables – a sense that revolution might be in the air...

That netherworld, often conjured in these pages, can sometimes appear like one other far-off abstract in a behind-closed-doors project that is, by its nature, either a call to arms in organising realistic futures, or an entertaining distraction from current realities, depending on where you are sitting.
