"This remarkable memoir is written with extraordinary care, intelligence and honesty. Though the material is powerful to begin with, what makes it work so well is its authorial voice: a rare combination of rawness and restraint, probing and delicacy, self-laceration and tenderness toward others. In short, it's fully alive."
—Philip Lopate, author of Portrait Inside My Head
“Honest, heartbreaking, gorgeously written, and hands down the most moving book I’ve read this year.” —Anthony Marra, author of A Constellation of Vital Phenomena
