Reviews

"I loved Alone Together. It's a brilliant, diverse, rich collections of essays, poetry, essays and dialogue by some of our most important (and some of my personal favorite) authors. Of course, the writing is as beautiful as it is varied. While the subject matter is overwhelmingly depressing, it's also reassuring to read that I'm not alone in what I'm feeling. These are powerful messages of unity and hope in a time of isolation and despair. Alone Together is a very important work that has emerged from a very dark time." --Kevin O'Brien, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Bad Sister and The Betrayed Wife
"Alone Together showcases the human desire to grieve, explore, comfort, connect, and simply sit with the world as it weathers the pandemic. Jennifer Haupt's timely and moving anthology also benefits the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, making it a project that is noble in both word and deed." --Ann Patchett, Bestselling author, bookseller, and Co-Ambassador for The Book Industry Charitable Foundation
"Alone Together connects writers, readers, and booksellers in a wonderfully imaginative way. It's a really good book for a really good cause." --James Patterson, Bestselling author, and Co-Ambassador for The Book Industry Charitable Foundation
"An anthology of poems, essays, interviews, and reflections inspired by the COVID-19 lockdown, with proceeds benefitting independent booksellers. A heartening gathering of writers joining forces for community support." --Kirkus Reviews
"A heartening gathering of writers joining forces for community support." --Kirkus Reviews
"Haupt convened scores of her fellow writers for this remarkable anthology of responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. Anyone who has weathered the past few months will find something in here that speaks to them." --Publishers Weekly
