About the Author
Praise For Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times…
“A glorious symphony. . . . [Radical Hope] expands my idea of home, of hope [and] is just what I needed at this alarming moment in our country’s history; I know others will feel the same way. All of us could use a good shot of radical hope right about now. . . . I can picture people carrying this book with them in a totemic way. And not just carry it--use it. . . . The inspiration found in these pages is evergreen.”—Gayle Brandeis, San Francisco Chronicle
“This collection is a plea to defy the idea that positive change is impossible. . . . De Robertis’s contributors . . . replied to her call with diverse, eloquent, and unapologetic pieces that speak to the heart and underline the sentiment that the personal is political. . . . The overall message is one of radical connection and thoughtful activism.”—Publishers Weekly
“I think I’m going to want to read this Baldwin-inspired collection yesterday, now, and through the conceivable future.”—R.O. Kwon, Electric Literature, “34 Books by Women of Color to Read This Year”
"Timely. . . . [Radical Hope] provides some comfort, direction, and inspiration. . . . Many readers will doubtless find solace in the volume."—Kirkus Reviews
