Since 2014's Men Explain Things to Me, Rebecca Solnit has emerged as an essential voice guiding us through the contemporary world, though her commentaries on feminism, violence, ecology, war, reasons for hope, and everything in between. The New York Times Magazine has called her "the voice of the resistance," and she's been profiled in The New York Times, ELLE, The New Republic, The New Yorker, and elsewhere.
Her 2018 book Call Them By Their True Names, was a national bestseller, a finalist for the National Book Award, and won The $50,000 Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction.
Her 2017 book The Mother of All Questions, was a national bestseller, a finalist for the PEN America Literary Award for the Art of the Essay and named one of the best books of the year by NPR, The San Francisco Chronicle, and many others.
Her 2016 book, an updated reissue of Hope in the Dark, became an instant grassroots bestseller following the 2016 election.
Her reputation as an essayist with a keen eye and an incisive ability to dig beneath the headlines to get to the root of America's crises has continued to grow through her widely-cited essays and columns in The Guardian, LitHub, and elsewhere.
