There are portraits as well of two uncles, who also live outside the expectations of normalcy and orthodoxy. Through the power of her observations, we see how our lack of intimacy with the natural world has initiated a lack of intimacy with one another. An Unspoken Hunger is finally a call to action, where we begin to find the courage and heart to stand our ground in the places we love. As Williams reminds us, "Perhaps the most radical act we can commit is to stay home."
