Praise

“It’s harrowing reading, but there are moments of hope and joy, particularly as he navigates fatherhood.”The New York Times

“From heartrending to hilarious, The Night the Lights Went Out is a deeply inspirational story of love, family, friendships, and the resiliency of the human spirit that will keep you riveted (and laughing) to the very last page.” —Gilbert King, author of the Pulitzer prize–winning, Devil in the Grove

“A visceral, transporting tale of life, death, and the liminal space between. And an enlightening, emotional evaluation of exactly what makes us who we are. This book is a necessary window into the aftermath of trauma and a reminder to never take our senses for granted.”—Kelsey McKinney, author of God Spare the Girls

“Drew Magary has written about the darkest year of his life with honesty, insight, and the perfect amount of humor to remind us that he’s one of the funniest writers around—even (or especially) when he’s literally writing about life and death.”—Reeves Wiedeman, author of Billion Dollar Loser

“Drew Magary’s The Night the Lights Went Out is funny, because of course it is. But I was most struck by how searching and hopeful it is; a sincere exploration of the mysteries of the mind and body and what it means to lose part of yourself but not always be entirely certain of which part. The book is soulful, searing, and deeply human.”—Will Leitch, author of How Lucky
