Anne Boyer’s memoir received a rave review in the New York Times. The reviewer Jennifer Szalai calls the book “extraordinary and furious” and writes “The pink ribbon, that ubiquitous emblem of breast cancer awareness, has long been an object of controversy and derision, but the poet and essayist Anne Boyer doesn’t just pull it loose, unfastening its dainty loop; she feeds it through a shredder and lights it on fire, incinerating its remains . . . Where Boyer finds a measure of hope is in pain — not in valorizing it (insufficient), or in conquering it (impossible), but in recognizing it as something that’s real and shared with others.” Farrar, Straus & Giroux will publish the book on September 17, 2019.
