Reviews

"Listening in the Dark is a new classic in the old tradition of women finding ways to remind ourselves, and each other, we have always been this powerful. That our bodies have always known to hear and see in the wind and sky what might be coming, or in some cases, what has already come to pass. These illuminating essays are as varied in subject as their authors are in background, but share a common goal in getting the reader to counteract generations of conditioning and ask themselves, 'But what if I'm right?' Brilliantly edited by Amber Tamblyn, this anthology isn't just worth reading, it's worth passing down to your own next generation, so they never forget what you learned inside." --Ashley C. Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Somebody's Daughter

"We've been told to second-guess ourselves. To doubt what we know in our bodies, our bones. And here comes this book with its chorus of brilliant, badass writers and thinkers saying Enough. Listen to yourself. Trust yourself. There's enough brainpower in these pages to electrify whole cities and they're asking us to join them: Shhhhhh. Listen. You know what to do, to make; how to heal, to fight. The answers are right there, pumping your own perfect heart." --Megan Stielstra, author of The Wrong Way to Save Your Life

"The stories in Listening in the Dark, ranging from lyrical to thought-provoking to laugh-out-loud funny, make a powerful case for trusting your gut. Intuition can save our lives--and even more than that, this brilliant collection argues, it can make our lives rich, fulfilling, and wholly, beautifully our own." --Claire Comstock-Gay, author of Madame Clairevoyant's Guide to the Stars

"What it means to know yourself and listen to yourself feel like lifelong practices, illuminated by this thought-provoking collection. Listening in the Dark creates space for readers to ask and answer their own questions about what it means to trust yourself." --Rainesford Stauffer, author of An Ordinary Age

"This is a luminous collection of compelling and important stories about what it means to trust yourself. In a world that is increasingly dangerous to women and non-binary people, Listening in the Dark is a powerful reminder that sometimes intuition is our only protection." --Natalka Burian, author of A Woman's Drink and co-founder of The Freya Project

"This gift of a book is for any woman - such as myself - who needs to be reminded why their gut instinct is the most powerful resource they have. A brilliant anthology that features some of our most dazzling and subversive minds." --Michele Filgate, editor of What My Mother and I Don't Talk About

"Readers will leave with a newfound appreciation for intuition, the electric magic that guides their creativity, relationships, and dreams. A gifted polymath, Tamblyn boldly dissects life's greatest mysteries to make readers feel less alone in their bodies and minds." --Booklist, Starred Review
