Goodbye to All That: Hello, new anthology!
COMING SEPTEMBER 24th
I have an essay coming out in this fantastic forthcoming anthology: Goodbye to All That is a collection of essays about loving and leaving the magical city of New York. Inspired by Joan Didion’s well-loved essay by the same name, this anthology features the experiences of 28 women for whom the magic of the city has worn off—whether because of loneliness after many friends marry, have kids, and head to the suburbs; jadedness about their careers; or difficulty finding true love in a place where everyone is always looking to trade up to a better mate, a better job, a better apartment.
With contributions from authors such as Cheryl Strayed, Ann Hood, Dani Shapiro, Emma Straub, Meslissa Febos, Chloe Caldwell, Emily St. John Mandel, and many more fabulous writers, this collection is relatable to anyone who arrived with stars in their eyes, hoping to make it. Each essay reveals the author’s own unique relationship with New York City, and together they encompass the complicated emotions all New Yorkers have about leaving.
The book will be officially released on September 24th, but you can pre-order it now by clicking here!

From the editors:
“We are witnessing the patriarchy’s last gasp, and it’s not going down without a fight. Using legislation, language, and women’s own silence, it seeks to return us to a time when choice and self-determination were not options.
In this collection, twenty-one fearless writers examine reproductive rights, access to health care, violence against women, and the rise of rape apologists in the twenty-first-century United States. Illuminating intersections of gender, class, and race, these stories speak to the challenges women routinely face, the attempts to undermine their rights, and the deliberate, systemic erosion of their agency and existence as equals. It’s time to revisit what’s at stake, what could still be lost, and why we must continually fight for equality and freedom for all.”
