Praise for The Crying Book
One of Publishers Weekly's Top Ten Books in Lifestyle in Fall 2019
Bustle, 1 of 11 New Memoirs for Your Fall Reading List
Paperback Paris, 1 of 12 New Books You'll Want to Bring Outside This Season

"[A] lyrical, moving book: part essay, part memoir, part surprising cultural study." --The New York Times Book Review

"Poet Heather Christle's book is about more than crying. As she reflects on the loss of a close friend to suicide and her own battle with depression, Christle asks why and how we cry and what it means, especially for women, to do so. But in The Crying Book, the author's blend of personal experience and scientific research gives way to broader discussions about motherhood, mental health, grief and art." --Annabel Gutterman, Time, 1 of 11 New Books You Should Read This Month

"Why do we cry? How do we cry? And what does it mean? This young poet examines scientifically and culturally the true art and meaning of tears." --Jake Thompson, E! News, One of the Best New Books of the Month

"An eclectic reflection on human waterworks . . . The unconventional format, combined with the author's vast survey of the topic, provides fascinating food for thought. A surprisingly hopeful meditation on why we shed tears." --Kirkus Reviews

"Readers are sure to be moved to tears themselves. This is a lovely meditation on life and death through the lens of tears, both those spurred by grief and those by joy." --Booklist

"The book's effects are sly and cumulative, relying not so much on any one observation as on associations, echoes, contrasts--a method that reflects Christle's view of art and life, the interdependence, the complex contagion and repetition of feeling and action and reaction that marks them . . . It's about grief and friendship, but only delicately so. Christle wants to preserve the particularity of experiences while illuminating what they have in common. Again and again she emphasizes that separation: 'It is dangerous, ' she insists, 'to always think one thing is another, every event a metaphor for another.' This is also to say that writing itself is dangerous, as well as essential." --Lidija Haas, Harper's Magazine

"Stunning." --Sophia Stewart, Los Angeles Review of Books

"Christle is a poet, and her prose shows it. You will surely end the book knowing much more about tears than when you started . . . Christle invites us into her sadness and along the way manages to unlock the beauty within." --Jonathan Foiles, Psychology Today

"Why do we cry? Heather Christle turns to poetry, philosophy, and personal experience for an inquisitive approach to answering this question." --Elena Nicolaou, Refinery29, One of the Best Books of the Month

"Few people understand the physical, political, mental, and emotional power of tears like Heather Christle, the poet behind The Crying Book." --Cristina Arreola, Bustle, 1 of the 19 Best New Books of the Month

"The scope of The Crying Book is surprisingly vast--we learn as much about crying as we do about grief, art, motherhood, and Christle's life. As she conducts and shares her painstaking research, she is also intimately attuned to her pain; she weaves together her examination of crying with her personal experiences, studying tears while shedding them herself. The result is a book that is as informative as it is profoundly moving." --Sophia Stewart, ZYZZYVA

"The Crying Book isn't merely a study, or even an abbreviated cultural history. It's also a memoir about motherhood, mental illness, grief, and (naturally) tears . . . The book's most striking moments are when Christle sounds like a poet--where she mixes the sadness of her subject matter with a playful and surprising freedom on the page." --Joshua James Amberson, Portland Mercury

"In The Crying Book, Heather Christle makes a poignant and piercing examination of the phenomenon of tears--exhaustive, yes, but also open-ended, such that I was left clutching this book to my chest with wonder, asking myself when the last time was that I cried, and why. A deeply felt, and genuinely touching, book." --Esmé Weijun Wang, author of The Collected Schizophrenias

"Heather Christle's new book is a combination of personal musings about depression, childbirth, and motherhood, and fascinating researched tidbits about crying--its history, its use in literature and pop culture, its politics, and the science behind it all. Basically, it's Maggie Nelson's Bluets, but about crying, and it's every bit as dazzling as the stars that dot its cover." --Cristina Arreola, Bustle, 1 of 36 New Books of the Season You Need to Have on Your Autumn Reading List

"The Crying Book adds a gravity to crying, a validation." --Amie Souza Reilly, The Adroit Journal

"This is a book about crying, yes, but secretly it's a book about everything: pain, sleep, joy, despair, birth, art, exile, atrocity, language, weather, fish. Christle's genius--a word I've never before written to describe a living author--is her ability to see the miraculous and strange lines connecting everything to everything: 'neither parallel nor perpendicular, ' she writes, but simply 'arcs that momentarily intersect before traveling on.' The Crying Book is a rigorous and urgent work, but it reads like an intimate gift." --Kaveh Akbar, author of Calling a Wolf a Wolf

"The Crying Book is spellbinding and propulsive--the map of a luminous mind in conversation with books, songs, friends, scientific theories, literary histories, her own jagged joy, and despair. Heather Christle is a visionary writer." --Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks

"This is a wonderful and profound look at the act of crying--something human and yet hidden, common and yet mysterious. I found myself reading with a thirst for the tears Heather Christle collects here--instances within literature, film, history, and the author's own life all add up to a greater understanding of what makes us human." --Chelsea Hodson, author of Tonight I'm Someone Else

"The Crying Book is a portrait of our time, as perceived through Christle's unique and electric mind. She moves through the scientific and the personal, exploring grief, friendship, and motherhood with eloquence, originality, and poetry. It seems clear there is a cosmic wound that rubs in our unconscious, which Christle investigates in an unflappable yet utterly compassionate voice. She is singular in her skills as a writer, thinker, and human being." --Bianca Stone, author of Someone Else's Wedding Vows

Praise for Heather Christle

"Heather Christle is a visionary writer, deeply intelligent and wildly compassionate, one of our most gifted chroniclers of the strange joys of being alive." --Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks

"Heather Christle's mind is supple and incandescent. Her curiosity appears to be bottomless, her tenderness inexhaustible. She has a joyous way of making the people around her pay attention, of making her readers attend not just to what she is saying but to the neglected wonders of their days. She vivifies life." --Noy Holland, author of Bird

Reseña del editor:

“This is a wonderful and profound look at the act of crying—something human and yet hidden, common and yet mysterious. I found myself reading with a thirst for the tears Heather Christle collects here—instances within literature, film, history, and the author’s own life all add up to a greater understanding of what makes us human.” —Chelsea Hodson, author of Tonight I’m Someone Else

Why do we cry? How do we cry? And what does it mean? A scientific, cultural, artistic examination by a young poet on the cusp of motherhood.

Heather Christle has just lost a dear friend to suicide and now must reckon with her own depression and the birth of her first child. As she faces her grief and impending parenthood, she decides to research the act of crying: what it is and why people do it, even if they rarely talk about it. Along the way, she discovers an artist who designed a frozen-tear-shooting gun and a moth that feeds on the tears of other animals. She researches tear-collecting devices (lachrymatories) and explores the role white women’s tears play in racist violence.

Honest, intelligent, rapturous, and surprising, Christle’s investigations look through a mosaic of science, history, and her own lived experience to find new ways of understanding life, loss, and mental illness. The Crying Book is a deeply personal tribute to the fascinating strangeness of tears and the unexpected resilience of joy.
