Reviews

"Seek You stunned me. Kristen Radtke, one of the best of our literary artists, shines her brilliant light into modern America's experiment in loneliness with this supremely elegant and devastating book. It was my companion during a long, dark night of the soul; I emerged grateful to have had such sleekness and wit, such calm intelligence, to guide me back to daylight."
--Lauren Groff, author of Florida

"If you've ever felt alone in America, this is the book you have been waiting to hold, and the one that will hold you back."
--Mira Jacob, author of Good Talk

"Kristen Radtke's Seek You seems almost to invent something brand new: the comic strip feature documentary? The long-form graphic essay? I dunno, and it really doesn't matter, because the humanity so keenly summed up in every line and mark of Radtke's hand transcendently transmutes both the seriousness of her investigatory aim and the genuine desperation which underpins its timely yet universal thesis--all the while magnified by the skill, empathy and great intelligence of its author."
--Chris Ware, author of Rusty Brown

"A meditation on isolation and longing, examines the silent epidemic of loneliness in America, from the invention of the laugh-track to the unethical experiments of Harry Harlow. Radtke is a writer of enviable emotional intelligence, and one of our most elegant and virtuosic artists of devastation. --Dan Sheehan, Lit Hub's Most Anticipated Books of 2021
