"Lucky enough to read an early copy, and I know already this is my favorite 2021 book (and easily a favorite memoir of my life). Incredible. Formally innovative, brilliant, present, so candid and felt. I know this book took the author a decade (maybe " Read more of this review »

“Everything I've learned from the time I was born is essentially some form of control. Basic lessons: how to control my hands, my body. Advanced lessons: how to control my volume, my appearance. Having control over myself allows me to choose. I can present myself as loudly or as softly, as boldly or as meekly, as wildly or as calmly as you wish.”
Lilly Dancyger, Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger

“The truth is, if the pain wasn’t as severe as it was, I may have just cowered and ignored my instincts. I may have just accepted that I was being paranoid, hysterical, overly sensitive. Why does it take so much to make them see?”
Lilly Dancyger, Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger

“There is too much beauty in being alive to silence my intuition, to ignore my body, to not sing its needs and demand that they be met. As it turns out, my anger has become my savior.”
Lilly Dancyger, Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger
