"A small pocket book that we should all carry and read continuously for the next two years."

John Umphlett

"As is mentioned in the author's history/introduction, I too can trace back through my life and recognize clear moments that began my obsession with materials.  There are so many properties inherent in this material world that make so many connections with one another often “we" or “I" don’t understand how to translate into a speaking language. A treat for those interested in stuff and origins of such things."

Michael Wimberly

"The book that knocked my socks off this year was Patricia Lockwood's Priestdaddy: A Memoir. It's the kind of hilarious (and painful) book that holds you hostage until you finish it and makes you annoy everyone around you because you have to read aloud from the section in which she describes the sounds her priest father makes on his electric guitar."
