Every page of this formally inventive, kaleidoscopic graphic memoir is a work of art in and of itself. ... [A] book that will change the literary landscape in 2021.--O The Oprah Magazine
Shira Spector's deeply moving graphic memoir is about love and sorrow, and the wondrousness of being alive despite everything. The inventive combination of text and drawing works perfectly to draw the reader in.--Roz Chast, Can't We talk About Something More Pleasant?
Shira Spector has created an ecstatic book about a life lived deeply, fully, and with the extreme bravery we must all have if we want to truly love and be loved.--Eleanor Davis, How To Be Happy
Using lithesome, intricate drawings and mixed-media collages, Spector debuts with a graphic memoir of desire and loss that expresses emotions viscerally and with a tactile immediacy.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
There are so many styles, so many layers to both the art and the story. Open it up to any page and you're met with an explosion of color, images, and words.--Book Riot
