"I'm thrilled with how this memoir inhabits the form of the epistolary novel and fills it with contemporary digital communication and transgressive content. To bring kink to the foreground is to insist on a radical kind of present tense, an unapologetic desire and desiring body. Which is to say that this book is a political act where the story of desire, loss, power, pleasure, pain and standing up take on phenomenal new meanings." - Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Chronology of Water

"A portrait of longing so vivid and agonizing that I could not turn away. Rarely does a story of obsession also render in such detail the strength of character and depth of self-knowledge necessary to turn away from the object of one's obsession and face the self. This is a wise, intimate, and profoundly erotic memoir." - Melissa Febos, author of Abandon Me

"A Year of Mr. Lucky is an immersive look at dating and kink through Meg Weber's talented pen. If you want to know what it's like to be into BDSM and searching, not necessarily for 'The One, ' but for something grander and even more fulfilling, read this memoir." - Rachel Kramer Bussel, author of Sex and Cupcakes: A Juicy Collection of Essays and Editor of the Best Women's Erotica of the Year series

"Articulate and dripping with emotion, this epistolary memoir from a Portland therapist and 'language slut' is a love letter to the city's kink scene, full of deeply insightful words on bottoming and polyamory problems, and a fitting postmortem to a compelling and all-too-brief D/s fling. If you've been romanticizing open relationships and BDSM sex, pick up this book for a dose of real talk about catching feelings, 'it's complicated' relationships, and processing need, grief, love, anger and lust." - Carol Queen PhD, author of The Leather Daddy & the Femme

"At turns radically edgy and heart-sleeve vulnerable, Meg Weber's writing will remind you what it means to be deeply human, and to be deeply yourself." - Ariel Gore, author of We Were Witches

"Meg Weber's A Year With Mr. Lucky is a rare offering: a memoir of erotic obsession that manages to be at once brazenly explicit and non-sensationalist. It's an interrogation of desire and torment, fantasy and transference, grief and psychodrama, self-deception and self-assertion that brings a therapist's sensibilities to bear on her own sexuality and how we negotiate the fulfillment of our needs... unapologetically transgressive and utterly poignant." - Elissa Wald, author of The Secret Lives of Married Women

"I could gush on the million, inspiring, literary feats Meg Weber has pulled off in this memoir - but I'll highlight her authorial eye. Weber never flinches but writes into the messiness of being alive, with hard won painful poignancy. She's the real deal." - Joshua Mohr, author of Sirens
