“Charles D'Ambrosio's essays are excitingly good. They are relevant in a way that makes you read them out loud to anyone who happens to be around. Absolutely accessible and incredibly intelligent, his work is an astounding relief -- as though someone is finally trying to put all the disparate, desperate puzzle pieces of the world together again.”
