it was amazing

Though the essays all have distinct, well-crafted structures, together they read as the memoir of a young woman delighting in her own freedom and sexuality, while battling the loneliness of youth in transition. These essays tackle questions of how to live true and well, the joys and difficulties of finding meaning where you can, and the search for a personal moral code. Caldwell’s straightforward prose does not apologize nor hide its complex truths, and often the tonal shifts between elated experimentation and its more complicated results lead to moments of poetic beauty. The voice of the collection was so honest and alive and lovable that I befriended Chloe after reading her work. I also love her other essays on The Rumpus. Hers is a career I'll be following all the way.
