Congratulations to Ayelet Waldman on publication of A Really Good Day by Corsair in the UK today! Ayelet’s memoir of a month experimenting with microdosing LSD as a treatment for anxiety depression, it’s a fascinating, eye-opening, miraculously honest and moving book, and we’re very proud to be Ayelet’s UK agents. Don’t take our word for it?
“Ayelet Waldman is fearless, which is our good fortune and sometimes hers. That boldness led to her fruitful adventures in mind-altering substances recounted here. Subtly mind-altering; this is a book about sub-hallucinatory microdoses of LSD but also about marriage and family life, insomnia, addiction, her past as a defense attorney, our insane drug laws, moods and dispositions and afflictions, and a lot of other stuff braided into an informative, amusing, nonchalantly incendiary narrative. You could call this book her war on the war on drugs, but it’s so much more, and so much more funny.”
—Rebecca Solnit, author of A Field Guide to Getting Lost
“Crisp, hilarious, and weirdly optimistic, Ayelet Waldman breaks from the convention of mental health memoir the way an acid head breaks from reality. At its core this is a deeply romantic story about the redemptive power of marriage, surprising and easy to celebrate.”
—Jenni Konner, showrunner and executive producer of Girls, co-founder of Lenny Letter
