Reviews

Misfits is a highly anticipated Fall book:
VULTURE ** TIME **ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY**
VOGUE**LITHUB**IN STYLE**BUSTLE

"By turns wryly comic and devastating . . . [Misfits] codifies her efforts to achieve transparency in her work and in her life."
--Dave Itzkoff, New York Times

"Coel covers everything . . . with her signature wit and wisdom, making it clear that her narrative power transcends the small screen. Coel's is a voice that jumps off the page, and it's one we're lucky to have applied to whichever story she chooses to tell."
--Vogue.com

"Written with the same perfect balance of sentiment, insight and wit that made viewers fall in love with her on the screen. . . . It's an impassioned and rousing defense of staying true to yourself and supporting others to do the same."
--Time

"Astute . . . Coel is a gifted writer. The text is razor-sharp and as funny as I May Destroy You."
--Rosie Kinchen, Sunday Times

"Warm and funny . . . A perfect truth-teller of our time."
--ELLE

"Searing . . . a call-to-arms book filled with her own life lessons. Prepare for this to be your self-help bible of 2021."
--Sunday Times

"Leaps off the page . . . [Coel] hits hard: funny, but also direct . . . Coel is all about letting go of fear or, at least, of using it to find your way to something better."
--Miranda Sawyer, The Observer
