Reviews
"Williams does not shy away from her shame. She is also angry, and she knows she is not alone, and that brilliant anger is where the book becomes truly great. Her confidence--and literal straight gaze at the reader, full of vulnerability and challenge--makes this volume a critique, a lament, and a sigh. As Williams elegantly argues, many women need all three. This sharp and splendidly drawn memoir will strike a strong chord in the current moment. "--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"...[Williams] adds an eloquent voice to the chorus of stories testifying to the daily experiences of women under patriarchy. Commute is a book that really should be read by everyone."--BookPage, Starred Review
"Williams is as unapologetic in this book as she is vulnerable, which makes for a unique, timely, and powerful read."
--The Beat
"One day's commute offers time for the author to reflect on sexual predators, alcoholism, and the experiences she understands better now than she did at the time...A catharsis for the author that fits perfectly within a pivotal period for society and culture at large."--Kirkus Reviews
"This is welcoming, soul-baring, stunningly interconnected, and very discussable."--Booklist
