“Everyone should have a Michael Beaumier as their guide through that murkiest of underworlds, the search for love (or at the very least, companionship). So how lucky we all are now that I Know You’re Out There is a book. Beaumier writes with wit, humor, a sorely tested patience coupled with a do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do melancholy, and overarching menschiness. This is a lovely book.” –David Rakoff, author of Don’t Get Too Comfortable
“It’s incredible that behind the personals at a weekly paper there existed this guardian angel, watching over the lonelyhearts and stepping in to help them find love. We put Michael Beaumier on our radio show because he knows how to tell a great story, and these—about what we do and don’t get from love—anyone can relate to.” —Ira Glass, producer and host, This American Life
