About
The Book
Combining the piercing insight of Joan Didion with humor reminiscent of Nora Ephron’s, Daum dissects our culture’s most dangerous illusions, blind spots, and sentimentalities while retaining her own joy and compassion. Through this collection of ten new essays, she dramatizes the search for an authentic self in a world where achieving an identity is never simple and never complete.

What Cheryl Strayed says

Meghan Daum’s new book, “The Unspeakable,” is thrillingly good. In essays that range in subject matter from her complicated relationship with her dying mother to playing charades with the Hollywood elite at Nora Ephron’s house to her near death from a bacterial infection, Daum’s powers as one of the most emotionally exacting, mercilessly candid, deeply funny and intellectually rigorous writers of our time are on glorious display.
