Press and Media Mentions
- NewPages (Landslide): "A real standout....Landslide juxtaposes the way both natural disasters and our own relationships have the capacity to upend our worlds in ways we never saw coming. Her essay...examines just how desperate people can be for connection and just how easily they’ll betray it to preserve themselves."
- Essay Daily (Landslide): Essay Daily: "An artful placement of needle against album." "In the end, we aren't left with simply a story about a falling out between two friends, colossal as it was, but an insight into the way disastrous events (both natural and personal) don't just happen, and certainly don't happen for one reason."
- NewPages (New Realities): "A true standout."
