I can not recommend this book more highly. Bri navigates highly traumatic content in a raw and powerful way. My tears started in chapter 3 and continued until the end. Every woman will find a relatable moment in what she has written and whilst none of us want to be alone in our abuse, it’s a tragic indictment of the patriarchal culture we find ourselves surrounded by. This is one of the best books of 2018. Thank you Bri. I hope this opens the door for more women to stand up, speak out and hold abusers accountable.

Burroughs was once my favourite author but upon listening to this book I was shocked at his misogynistic, white male privilege. There were moments where I couldn’t stand listening to his entitled descriptions of women or anyone he saw fit to judge through the lens of his privilege. He crafts stories well but the content of this book is eye rolling, poor me, white man neuroses.

What a beautiful and intricately woven story. Each character, delicately formed and layered. Highly recommend this book. The performance of Rebecca Lowman is one of the best I’ve heard. She added depth to this wonderful book. 10/10.

Laura has a way of writing that is conversational and easy to follow. I cringed at the male privilege that marked so much of her experiences but found her story one of humanness and vulnerability. It’s one long truth bomb about gender, fame and accountability. I enjoyed this immensely.

Every white woman needs to hear this.

Phenomenal. It changed the landscape of my thinking on feminism and white patriarchy. I can not recommend it more.

I nodded my head with every word. This book is a game changer for women who want to stand in their power. A beautifully narrated and poignant piece of literature.

Written and performed in signature Tig style this book is heartbreaking, funny and raw. Vulnerable and stoic, Notaro speaks her truth in a lyrical and irreverent way. I couldn’t put it down.

I started listening and didn't stop until it was finished. Funny, fierce and poignant. Lindy West says everything fat feminists are thinking. Thank you Lindy.

Miranda July grabs those fleeting yet numerous thoughts we have that we disregard as ridiculous or unsavoury and creates art with them. She has a stunning way of weaving together life's oddities into stories that feel like home, that home that exists inside us that we dare not show to the world.

This book had me sneaking an earphone in while on the phone to my mother. I could not put it down. I could not imagine it narrated by anyone else other than Miranda herself.

This is my number one book of 2015. What a brilliantly strange and wonderful mind.
