Reviews

"A searing and super smart call-to-arms that takes on a range of social and political problems in America--from racism and misogyny to climate change and Donald Trump--Call Them by Their True Names features Solnit's signature wit, humor, honesty, and incisive commentary, and beneath it all, a focus on progress and hope." --Poets & Writers "Solnit [is] a powerful cultural critic: as always, she opts for measured assessment and pragmatism over hype and hysteria."
--Publishers Weekly
"Solnit is careful with her words (she always is) but never so much that she mutes the infuriated spirit that drives these essays."
--Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review) "Rebecca Solnit is a treasure." --Marketplace "Solnit's exquisite essays move between the political and the personal, the intellectual and the earthy." --ELLE "Rebecca Solnit is the voice of the resistance." --New York Times Magazine "No writer has better understood the mix of fear and possibility, peril and exuberance that's marked this new millennium." --Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org "Rebecca Solnit is essential feminist reading." --The New Republic
