'Fee writes with stunning honesty ... utterly breathtaking' - Bustle
A beautiful memoir from an exciting young writer, Meg Fee, on finding her way in New York City. Full of the dramas and quiet moments that make up a life, told with humour, heart, and hope.
In Places I Stopped on the Way Home, Meg Fee plots a decade of her life in New York City - from falling in love at the Lincoln Center to escaping the roommate (and bedbugs) from hell on Thompson Street, chasing false promises on 66th Street and the wrong men everywhere, and finding true friendships over glasses of wine in Harlem and Greenwich Village.

Weaving together her joys and sorrows, expectations and uncertainties, aspirations and realities, the result is an exhilarating collection of essays about love and friendship, failure and suffering, and above all hope. Join Meg on her heart-wrenching journey, as she cuts the difficult path to finding herself and finding home.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"If you ever needed a book that would be both relatable as hell when you're in your lowest dating woes, and act as the most soothing balm for heartbreak, then you need to add this book in your life." - Bustle
"A beautifully warm-hearted and vulnerable memoir. I enjoyed every single page."- Emma Gannon, author & broadcaster, Ctrl Alt Delete
"Meg writes so movingly about the way one's ghosts can inhabit a city, and how courage comes from embracing them." - Daisy Buchanan, author, How to Be a Grown-Up
"Places I Stopped on the Way Home is perfect - an exquisite articulation of loneliness and searching." - Laura Jane Williams, author, Ice Cream for Breakfast
"Without question the best book I've read this year, and one that I will return to again and again, Places I Stopped on the Way Home is everything I love in a book." - The Literary Edit

"A collection of raw yet beautifully crafted snapshots of Meg Fee's painful coming-of-age in the city she had dreamed of inhabiting ... touched me far more than I had expected." - A Life in Books


"Places I Stopped on the Way Home is an engaging account of a young woman shaping a life that shows her what she does and doesn't want, ultimately allowing her to become the person she wants to be ... I found myself frequently marking lines and wondering how Fee had sussed so many of these things long before I did." - The Writes of Woman
