Reviews

"Insightful, witty and accessible prose. . . . Gay has an ability to blend the personal and political in a way that feels simultaneously gentle and brutal. . . . For 1,400 or so words you look at a cultural moment through Gay's eyes and, by the end, you see the world differently." -- The Guardian

"A true star in the literary world known for her uncompromising opinions, timely takes on modern American culture, and in-depth profiles." -- Shondaland

"Her opinions are not just indictments of the suffering people went through, but intimate conversations capable of uplifting the reader during any phase of their life." -- The Harvard Crimson

"Gay's essays are brilliant and incisive. . . . Each piece on its own is worthy of attention. Taken collectively, this title is not to be missed." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"This is a must-read for not only fans of Gay's work, but for everyone interested in reading intellectual, accessible, and important takes on timely topics." -- Booklist (Starred Review)

"Essays, op-eds, and pop-culture pieces from the acclaimed novelist and memoirist. . . . [Gay] has a gift for clean, well-ordered prose, and strong feelings on matters of race, gender, and sexuality. Most important, she possesses a fearlessness essential to doing the job right; though she can observe an issue from various angles, she never wrings her hands or delivers milquetoast commentaries. . . . she comes to her opinions more out of empathy than ideology. . . . Fierce and informed riffs on current events and enduring challenges." -- Kirkus Reviews
