Reviews:

“Animal You’ll Surely Become is an honest, intimate, and unwaveringly compassionate look at our human vulnerability, especially the young, the disenfranchised, the addicted, and the innocent. These fierce essays sting, then sing. Brittany Hailer is a writer to watch, that’s for sure.” – Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire

“Animal You’ll Surely Become is a courageous and confident debut that juggles sorrow and fear, rage and love, hurt and triumph, all while balanced on an umbilical highwire tethered between memory and the moon. After reading this book, you will never see cherry blossoms or a tortoise shell or a collarbone or a wine bottle or a pile of clothes in the same way again. Angela Carter, Kate Bernheimer, and Lidia Yuknavitch fans, you heard it here first: Brittany Hailer is a writer to watch.” —Molly Gaudry, author of We Take Me Apart and Desire: A Haunting


“Animal You’ll Surely Become is a brutal and lyric shape-shifter of a book. It reinvents itself with each chapter, always turning on the reader. This book is an animal who is smart and soft, intuitive and vicious. It is a hybrid-myth of a beast with three faces pointing backwards, forwards, and most importantly: straight ahead, daring its reader, its prey, to blink. Hailer debuts with a lush and dirty book that is as adventurous as it is ambitious, and as I read it, I couldn’t look away. ” -Sarah Shotland, Author of Junkette
