Against Memoir

STAFF REVIEW: Michelle Tea's new book of essays, Against Memoir: Complaints, Confessions & Crticisms, blew me away. Some essays scrape like sandpaper. Others comfort like an arm draped over a shoulder. Tea is alternatively a modern-day prophet and a street-wise friend everyone needs to help them stay up with every new societal quirk and meme and to remind them to check their ego and privilege in a time of profound change.

"Eclectic and wide-ranging. . . . A palpable pain animates many of these essays, as well as a raucous joy and bright curiosity." --The New York Times

"Gorgeously punk-rock rebellious." --The A.V. Club
