ALERT: We’re giving away two uncorrected proof copies of GRACE PERIOD: A MEMOIR IN PIECES by Kelly J. Baker, which comes on out 10/2.
Book Riot has great things to say about Baker’s gorgeous memoir-in-essays:
In a series of vivid and beautiful essays, Baker uses her changing relationship to academia to reflect on “grace periods,” those moments (or strings of moments) when you leave one possible future behind without quite knowing what’s next. Grace Period’s form serves it especially well: Baker has been writing about her transition since 2013, and Grace Period collects those essays and reflections together into a whole both fragmentary and so, so whole. … You watch Baker grow—as a person, a thinker, a writer—without the book erasing her “missed turns” (in her phrase) in retrospect. That’s how we all live our lives, unsure of what’s to come, and I’m thrilled to see that experience explored so sensitively and so beautifully in Grace Period.
