Bold, vital and coolly brilliant, this collection of essays is both deeply personal and raw. From addiction to depression, fertility to sexual violence, the writing is startling in its self-awareness and contained anger. Emilie delves into her most personal issues with clarity and incision. She chooses to leave herself vulnerable but declares in the last line of the book - “I am afraid. But I am doing it anyway.” Her bravery and honesty are as astounding as her writing is extraordinary.

- Karina Clifford, Dubray Stillorgan
