Praise for The Brink of Being:

“Bueno’s choice of language is considered and thoughtful, unpacking difficult issues that are so often avoided for fear of causing distress. She writes with sensitivity and compassion, filling a much-needed void in discussion around the subject, and opening the door to more candid conversations.” —The Guardian 

[A] profound game-changer of a book that can not only support women, but can help reshape a society that often ignores or sweeps women’s issues under that proverbial rug.” —Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and Is this Tomorrow

“The sort of book that women have long been searching for…Thanks to Bueno’s radical empathy and openness, the reader comes away more consoled than heartbroken, and more curious than afraid.” —Meaghan O’Connell, author of And Now We Have Everything

“A thoughtful work that identifies and honors an important passage of life for a great many women.” —Julia Leigh, author of Avalanche
