Product Details


“[Handler’s] wisdom transcends her youthfulness; she writes with grace and insight, and she never stumbles over her own self-importance."
The San Francisco Chronicle

“Handler has put her values into action with tenacious creativity. She ably conveys the histories of places many people couldn't find on a map in a lively, moving and funny voice."
—Publishers Weekly

“Marisa Handler takes a brutally honest look at herself, the activist community, and the world. She writes with wit and beauty, preaches with passion and love. Loyal to the Sky is an affirmation that mortal humans, with all our foibles, can be powerful agents for change.”
— Medea Benjamin, Cofounder, Global Exchange and CODEPINK

“Handler captures in this book the most hopeful energies of her generation and will excite anyone who hopes for a post-Bush world of peace and justice. Insightful and charming, spiritually rich and emotionally honest, Handler's writing shows that tikkun olam, the healing of the world, is not some outdated fantasy but an ever-present possibility.”
— Rabbi Michael Lerner, Editor, Tikkun, and author of The Left Hand of God:
Taking Back our Country from the Religious Right
