I am profoundly grateful for this book, in this visceral, immediate, and subjective way that disinclines me to say much beyond that. Of course, there is so much to respond to, analyze, reflect on, identify with, raise an eyebrow, nod, and laugh out loud at, pine, grieve, and long for, obsess over, wish you'd written and so forth. But I think I'll just sit with my gratitude that Bellamy was brave enough to write this and put it out as is, and that I read something so personally resonant at such an opportune time.

Flawless? No. And that’s entirely the point.
