Deanna Fei is the author of the new memoir GIRL IN GLASS (Bloomsbury), hailed as “extraordinarily beautiful” by NPR and “an impassioned, important book” by the Washington Post. GIRL IN GLASS was recently featured on PBS NewsHour, Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC, and NPR’s All Things Considered, among other outlets.

In 2014, Fei's essay, “My Baby and AOL’s Bottom Line,” went viral worldwide and sparked national conversations about medical privacy, corporate accounting, employer-sponsored health care, and what a human life is worth. She appeared on NBC’s the Today show, the CBS Evening News, CNN’s Erin Burnett Show, MSNBC’s News Nation, and NPR’s Here and Now to discuss her decision to speak about her “distressed baby.”

“A love gone bad, a sea of bitterness: such an everyday thing. As ordinary as the tide, and perhaps as relentless. But tides turned, too.”
Deanna Fei, A Thread of Sky

“Here it was like wind or rain, a sign of the seasons, just part of the weather-- another element of this country that took hold of her, even as it eluded her grasp”
Deanna Fei, A Thread of Sky

“And a blank page was quite beautiful on its own, she'd found. There were already so many words, so many voices in the world. She flinched at contributing to the cacophony.”
Deanna Fei, A Thread of Sky
