Advance Praise for My Own Devices

“Dessa has captured the punishing beauty of untenable love and touring, states of being that both require a stubborn, romantic heart.” –-Tegan and Sara

“I found myself laughing with almost every page, often because the writing was funny, but even more often out of sheer delight at someone using the English language so audaciously well. Dessa has an essayist’s eye and a rapper’s virtuosity, and she’s going to conquer the world.” –Joseph Fink, author of Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn’t Dead

“Dessa is a master of putting words to our feelings, even the ones that are hardest to pinpoint. This book is her deftest work: an articulation of the feelings that haunt so many of us: the thrill of pursuing everything you want, the terror of realizing you’re racing against an invisible clock, and the ache of loving a person you probably shouldn’t. I read it cover to cover — twice — and dogeared so many pages it would be easier to find the pages I *hadn’t* marked. A beautiful book.” –Nora McInerny, Author and host, Terrible, Thanks for Asking 

“Dessa has consistently transcended conventional stereotyping, and her writing should command interest even from readers who know nothing of her work with the Doomtree collective and her solo releases.” –Kirkus Reviews
