Praise for I Miss You When I Blink:

"I've spent my adult life prowling bookshelves for the modern-day reincarnation of my favorite authors--Nora Ephron, Erma Bombeck, Jean Kerr, and Laurie Colwin--all rolled into one...Good news: I have finally found their successor."-- "Elisabeth Egan, The Washington Post"
"Mary Laura Philpott is a writer, artist, and creator of singular spark and delight. I adore her, and I love her work. Thank God she has finally written a memoir! By offering these dispatches from her own life experience, she leaves us thinking about ourselves--where we've been, where we're going, and who we really want to be."--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic
"Infinitely relatable. Beautifully written. I'm ready to read it again."--Jenny Lawson, author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy
"Mary Laura Philpott is the friend you call when you want to cry but need to laugh. What a treat to spend time with her distinctive voice as she plumbs life's quotidian moments to unearth deeper, universal truths. Wry, intelligent, and searingly honest, this book is a joy." --Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, author of The Nest
