"An incisive, nuanced inquiry into gender and body."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
--Literary Hub "Emerson Whitney's first prose book is a frank and absorbing examination of transness, brokenness, mothering, femininity, embodiment and truth."
--Ms. Magazine One of the Observer's Best Books of Spring "Heaven is an unflinching personal examination of family and identity, bearing witness to what it means to live life on one's own terms."
--Foreword Reviews "A gripping memoir whose sentences are akin to a skipped heartbeat"
--PAPER, best books to buy in Quarantine
"(U)tterly hypnotic... a gorgeous book that feels like a painting"

"(W)hat Heaven does best is capture the disorienting pull of unsettling childhood memories--at once incomplete and terribly weighted."
"Provocative, emotional, infinitely faceted... a reminder that messiness is at the heart of all beautiful things"
