The experience of reading this book = PURE DELIGHT. I love Elisa Gabbert's mind -- wandering, playful, and full of niche facts and interests. I devoured each essay like candy ("just one more!"), and at its conclusion I declared Gabbert my new favorite nonfiction writer.

— From The Word Pretty, by Elisa Gabbert

Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. Memoir. Cultural Criticism. In THE WORD PRETTY Elisa Gabbert brings together humor and observational intelligence to create a roving and curious series of lyrical essays on writing, reading, and living. Combining elements of criticism, meditation, and personal essay, this book reveals a poet's attention turned to subjects from translation to aphorism, from unreliable memory to beauty and the male gaze.
