Reviews

Praise for We Are Okay "A meditation on surviving grief, We Are Okay is short, poetic and gorgeously written.... The power in this little book is in seeing Marin come out on the other side of loss, able to appreciate a beautiful yellow-glazed pottery bowl and other people's kindnesses, and to understand that she might one day have a girlfriend and a future. The world LaCour creates is fragile but profoundly humane." --The New York Times Book Review "A beautiful, devastating piece of art. . . .The title hints at a happy ending, but the journey toward it passes through some of the darkest corners of the heart. Be prepared to be gutted--and grateful. We Are Okay is an extraordinary work by an author who keeps redefining and elevating her genre." --Bookpage "Nina LaCour treats her emotions so beautifully and with such empathy.
