How to Read Now: Essays by [Elaine Castillo]

We are delighted to see that Elaine Castillo’s powerful non-fiction work, How To Read Now, is receiving fantastic early praise, including starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews.

Kirkus said: “Not just thoroughly researched, these essays are also wildly engaging, with a biting and appropriately scathing tone and plenty of humor. Refreshingly, the humor never distracts from the urgency of the prose or incisiveness of the analysis. An excellent collection of essays about important subjects too often glossed over.”

Publishers Weekly praised it as “Brilliant and passionate… Castillo’s knowledge, along with her firebrand style and generous humor, result in a dynamic and necessary look at the state of storytelling. This one packs a powerful punch.”

How to Read Now will be published by Viking in the US on July 26th and Atlantic Books in the UK on the August 4th.
