I think the blurb smack dab on the front of the book, the one from Roxane Gay herself, sums it up best. Early in the book, Juliet writes a letter to her feminist writer icon, saying, “I know you’re not a Magic 8 ball. You’re just some lady who wrote a book. But I fall asleep with that book in my arms because words protect hearts and I’ve got this ache in my chest that won’t go away.” Juliet Takes A Breath is a book you can fall asleep holding.
