Bookbug is honored to
welcome Leslie Jamison on the release of her essay collection, THE
EMPATHY EXAMS. Jamison is the author of a novel, THE GIN CLOSET, as well
as numerous works in The Believer, Harper's, Oxford American, and Tin
House. She serves as a Bookends columnist for the New York Times Book
Review. Above all, she is a captivating writer and human being.
Jamison’s essays strike with a journalist’s keen eye, a poet’s silken
tongue, and—what else—an empath’s enormous, fierce, and benevolent
heart. I’m not ordinarily a margin-scribbler, but this book had me
scrambling for a pencil time and time again. Jamison has so much to tell
THE EMPATHY EXAMS is the winner of the Graywolf Press Nonfiction Prize, has been named a Publishers Weekly Top Ten Essay Collection for Spring 2014, and is garnering enormous praise among writers and readers of all stripes. Read a recent interview in flavorwire, and check out this glowing review from the NY Times.
