Reviews

"In Jude Stewart's witty, surprising, and jubilant romp through the most undervalued of the senses, you will encounter some of most rapturous descriptions of scent ever put on paper. But even more than that, Revelations in Air is an expansive and large-hearted consideration of friendship, memory, beauty, and the art of appreciation."
--Adrienne Miller, author of In the Land of Men.

"Revelations in Air manages to feel both breezy and substantial, exciting and informative--like an expertly guided tour of scents." -Jessie Gaynor, Lit Hub Senior Editor

"Journalist Stewart (Patternalia) takes olfaction seriously in this impassioned exploration of smell... What sets Stewart's tour apart is her intense descriptions--jasmine has "an extraordinary sense of liftoff" that "rolls over you like a tidal wave," and the smell of truffles is "heterodox, suggesting its own universe... packed with vibrant energy." --Publishers Weekly
