An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Along with two previous works, Penguins with People Problems and I Miss You When I Blink, Mary Laura Philpott is also author of the essay collection Bomb Shelter: Love, Time, and Other Explosives. Says BookPage of the new work, “Philpott’s openhearted joy and fear is relatable regardless of your parenting status — a reminder that, even amid the most frightening challenges, we are rarely alone.” Philpott discussed Bomb Shelter with WYPL’s Stephen Usery in July.
