“Zygmunt Bauman (1925–2017) is a household name for those who read in social theory, sociology, cultural studies. Across sixty books in English and many essays, he is widely known as the puzzler of the modern, postmodern, liquid modern and its subsets, such as liquid love. I was fortunate, together with others, to get to know him, and his wife, Janina. This necessarily meant visiting, from Australia, staying chez Bauman and entering momentarily into the everyday life cycle of Lawnswood Gardens. It meant being inserted into his household.”
