Praise

“Yes, The Urgent Life is the epic, riveting story about the love between a woman and her family. It is also a love story between a singularly brilliant woman and life itself. Every page shows us how to love and lose while staying so unflinchingly close to the beautiful, brutal truth of life that we finally suck the marrow out of it. Bozoma St. John’s clarity, wisdom, and lyricism make The Urgent Life the memoir of the year.” –Glennon Doyle, author of the NYT bestseller Untamed

“Bozoma Saint John takes us on a deeply personal journey from pain to power. Her story reflects the indomitable spirit of hope that transcends the most deplorable moments we all encounter between mountains. This is a guide to lift your heart, beyond the dismal shadows of now, to the effervescent enlightenment of next. More than a book; this page-turning ride will transport you from shades of night to the effervescence of light.  Buckle up!  You are in for a ride!” –T.D. Jakes, author, entrepreneur, and pastor of The Potter’s House of Dallas

“Anyone who has crossed paths with Boz knows she is a force—ready to take on the world, even in the face of loss. Infused with determination, spirituality and passion, The Urgent Life will make you want to pour yourself into everything you do and wring the most of out of every single day.”
–Katie Couric

“A woman we can ALL look up to! Boz’s story is heartbreaking, yet inspiring, and brings nothing but light and love to even the darkest of times. She is the definition of keep on keepin’ on, and I know that’s exactly what she will continue to do.” —Quincy Jones

“A remarkably moving read about love, loss, and resilience. Bozoma Saint John is a force of nature, and her memoir will make you laugh, cry, and think hard about the meaning of your life and the relationships that matter most.” –Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast Re:Thinking

The Urgent Life is an urgent book, a waterfall of life’s tragedies and happinesses —and it is also a meditation on how to live, with agency and will and also with truth, care and joy. Any reader who has lived and loved and lost will find a home in this book.” —Amy Bloom, New York Times bestselling author of In Love
