MEDIA REVIEWS

If you dread picking up your phone when it beeps with a breaking news alert (understandable these days), then Radical Hope is for you - it's angry and passionate and inspiring. Stylist Just what I needed at this alarming moment in our country's history; I know others will feel the same way. All of us could use a good shot of radical hope right about now ... [A] glorious symphony... I know this book will encourage readers to put their own radical hope to practice, to translate it into action, to write their own letters, politicize their own art, create space for other voices to be heard. San Francisco Chronicle I think I'm going to want to read this Baldwin-inspired collection yesterday, now, and through the conceivable future. R.O. Kwon, Electric Literature, "34 Books by Women of Color to Read This Year" This anthology is like the book version of a Justice League of superheroes: a collection of writers to guide us through tumultuous political times. Vulture This collection is a plea to defy the idea that positive change is impossible... De Robertis's contributors ... replied to her call with diverse, eloquent, and unapologetic pieces that speak to the heart and underline the sentiment that the personal is political... The overall message is one of radical connection and thoughtful activism. Publishers Weekly These letters balance two aims: to enlighten the outside world and, perhaps more importantly, to share tactics of survival and resistance with kin and whoever else might need them.
