Praise for “It Can Always Be Worse”:

The author captures the understated, emotional and social complexities and challenges facing parents, and especially mothers of high needs children, all the while remaining true to their own unique story through vividly rendered memories. And this story is just such a great encapsulation of that experience, told with an engaging and challenging balance of authority and self-awareness.”

-Omar Mouallem, filmmaker, editor and author of award-winning Praying to the West.

We found the writing lively and interesting and enjoyed reading it.”

-Sven Birkerts and William Pierce, Editors at AGNI: The Journal, Boston University.
