  • For us, here is a book that gives and gives, I loved every word of this phenomenally generous, nourishing and beautiful book

    Salena Godden, author of Mrs Death Misses Death
  • A brilliant reminder that the answers we seek are within ourselves ... Yrsa Daley-Ward's words are a guidepost, a reminder, and a welcome home

    Stephanie Long, Refinery29
  • A heartfelt, artful manifesto focused on living fully and authentically ... By turns simplistic, elegaic, and illuminative

  • In this gratifying exploration of the self, Daley-Ward excels at describing the indescribable ... this work defies genre and features a beautiful blend of lyrical prose and bold poetry... This is a tender, hopeful meditation

    Publishers Weekly
  • A major literary talent . . . speaks about the power and powerlessness that young women are subject to in a wholly fresh, clear-eyed way . . . you'll find it hard to come away from The Terrible without a stab of recognition in your chest
