It feels like one more happy sign of spring that book reviews for The Witch of Eye have started popping up here and there in the world.
I’m so grateful to Geri Lipshultz and The Rumpus for this review of The Witch of Eye. It’s really wonderful to be so deeply, perfectly read:
“This is a book for our time, to help us unpack what we are seeing before our eyes, on our screens, a book to help us survive—to see beyond the smokescreen of what we have been told is true. To be fearless, and by our resistance and our actions, to contest these economies of power that play out on women’s bodies. Nuernberger’s book itself is a charm, as she pulls these disciplines together, weaving them like an artist, like a magician, like a healer, like a witch, her words like stitches into a tapestry.”
“The stories of witches truly are the stories of renegade women, and, it turns out, the history of systematic and sanctioned abuse of marginalized people by those in power. Nuernberger masterfully draws parallels between the witch trials and modern day persecution in beautifully lyrical prose. “
It’s such a joy to see this book making it into the hands of readers who get what I was hoping to say, imagine, make thinkable with these essays.
