Reviews

[A] blazing debut...[Blackburn's] sentence-level excellence and gift for subtle characterization help this take flight. It's a formidable portrait of the thin line between faith and delusion.

-- "Publishers Weekly" (2/1/2024 12:00:00 AM)

Loose of Earth is a poignant memoir--at once a family story and a bold exposé of the lasting effects of 'forever chemicals.'

-- "Foreword Reviews" (3/1/2024 12:00:00 AM)

Loose [of] Earth is an arresting memoir about love and unbending religion, toxicity and disease, and one family's desperate wait for a miracle that never came. Blackburn has proven herself an adept essayist, making this a release you don't want to miss.
