Reviews

"I read this book on a day I couldn't get out of bed and it made me feel like I had a friend in the world. Simply put, this book disappears loneliness." -- Andrea Gibson, author of Lord of the Butterflies
"In Depression & Other Magic Tricks, Sabrina Benaim has devised a maze of language that both prods and lulls the reader deeper into the tangle: "What is the name of a place that everyone can see is burning...& that place is not a place but a person." Unafraid to address the intangible murk of depression's stronghold in the face of grief, Benaim writes "when the sky fell...you would think i would have run." And aren't we all this surprised by what we will and will not do in the heat of our own undoing? It is a thing of courage to address the bottomless dark with whole words, to trumpet its omnipresence, to name it and not flinch." -- Jeanann Verlee, author of Said the Manic to the Muse
