Reviews

Praise for The Lonely Stories

This profound collection shines light on the different facets of being alone, a condition of modern life that predates the pandemic and will continue beyond. It's a gorgeous, illuminating exploration of the ways in which connection is crucial to survival and creative expression can heal. --Suleika Jaouad, author of Between Two Kingdoms

Surprising, sly, heart-stopping, celebratory--the essays in The Lonely Stories evoke the gamut of emotions, in the way of isolation itself. A timely, and lasting, collection. --Claire Messud, author of The Burning Girl

Praise for Eat Joy

Natalie Eve Garrett's Eat Joy does this magical thing where it makes you remember the tastes of the heaviest times in your life, while reminding you that everyone on earth has experienced the taste of love and loss, though none of our tastes are the same. This is the first collection that ever made me want to sensually eat, cook, write, and thank all the wonderful makers of the most memorable memories in my life. --Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy
