Editorial Reviews


Wish You Were Me is funny. Achingly funny. Uncomfortably funny, and that's the best kind of funny. It's the kind of humor you'll never forget and it's the kind of book you'll find necessary to subject your friends to. --Mary Van Note

Myriam Gurba just blows me away. Her wit, her perversion, her sharp female smarts, her total fearlessness. I gasp and I gasp as I read her work because I can't believe she said that! It's not shocking, it's a relief. Okay it's a little bit shocking, too. All the best writing makes you come undone a little and Myriam is not afraid to stick her fingernails into your psyche and pull. --Michelle Tea

Gritty. Nasty. Hard... Gurba may be funny, but she s also getting at serious stuff. And this is where I m drawn. I wish there were more of the serious stuff sometimes, but I also get it, that it s the humor that lightens otherwise pretty dark moments. While I find the humor surprising, I have to admit at times I could use less of it. But I think that s just me as a reader, personally. I hate when reviewers just go and state things like, The dark humor in this book just comes off as [fill in the blank]. It s not like this for me. I truly believe that there are a lot of readers that are the right readers for this collection. And I believe this collection should be read by many, many readers. I hope these readers will discover these chapbooks, and read them, and love them. --Molly Gaudry, The Big Other
