Reviews

I missed an unprecedented two subway stops because I was so engrossed in iO Tillett Wright's East Village memoir Darling Days. A riveting story about growing up trans with a mentally ill mother, it will make you fall for the precocious, streetwise iO -- Olivia Laing * Guardian * An immensely evocative portrait of growing up in a tenement building in 80s and 90s New York -- Anita Sethi * Observer * A wild ride through the grimier bits of downtown New York in the Eighties and Nineties . . . fans of Patti Smith's Just Kids will love it -- Sarra Manning * Red * If you enjoyed Patti Smith's Just Kids or Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle, you will devour this * The Pool * A startlingly good debut -- Frances Wilson * Oldie * It's already a rare and wonderful thing to have a great story-but a unique and compelling voice to tell it with is even rarer. With Darling Days, iO Tillett Wright takes us right to where great storytelling lives. A terrific, terrific book, filled with great characters, set in a time and place, the pre-gentrified Lower East Side of Manhattan, that spins farther away from memory with every passing day -- Anthony Bourdain Gender-defying iO Tillett Wright mixes such a high-octane cocktail of radiant ink, wild anecdotes, bad behavior, and gritty truths -topped off with an unexpected tonic of transcendence-it could stagger Charles Dickens, electrify Maxim Gorky, and cause Jane Austen to walk around in army boots -- Tom Robbins
