Disappearing in Glimpses
by Geneva Phillips


Disappearing in Glimpses is a stunning work, raw and powerful and true. In powerful juxtaposition, these shards of creative nonfiction create a wrenching and clear-eyed memoir: haunting, urgent, full of grace. 

                                                  —Rilla Askew, author of Most American: Notes from a Wounded Place

 A harrowing, beautiful collection. Phillips has written a book as unflinching in the ugliness it shows as it is beautiful in its precise, surprising language. You will emerge wide-eyed, changed, and grateful.                                      
                                     —Constance Squires, author of
Live from Medicine Park and Hit Your Brights 

Geneva is one of my closest friends, a friendship forged as we have shared our lives through writing. She wrote to me once that, “Hope is the shining thread that binds me to life.” Hers is a hope won by an unflinching honesty and courage to confront her past and her brokenness. 

                                                       —Ellen Stackable, Executive Director and Founder of Poetic Justice
