Praise

“Melissa Febos has written one of the most liberating books on the subject of writing that I can think of. A tender, urgent intelligence, a wisdom that is hard-won, and a rigor born from a love for the craft preside . . . I learned so much reading Body Work that I can’t wait to teach and use on the page.” —Alexander Chee, author of How to Write an Autobiographical Novel

“Melissa Febos’s Body Work is the most necessary book about memoir I’ve read. Daring, honest, psychologically insightful, and absolutely whip smart. A must read for anybody shoving a pen across paper or staring into a screen or a past.” —Mary Karr, author of The Liars’ Club and The Art of Memoir 

“Ferociously smart and piercingly insightful, Body Work is an instant classic of the how-and-why-do-we-write form. With candor and clarity, Melissa Febos explores the complexities of writing courageously and honestly about our lives. It’s a book I’ll return to again and again.” —Cheryl Strayed, author of Brave Enough and Wild
