Description

You Care Too Much is a collection of poetry, fiction, confessional writing, art and photography by 17 female contributors on “the question of self care.”

Self care™ has become a buzzword— Listicles, Instagram, and GOOP remind us to take a break, treat ourselves—we deserve it. But it’s not enough to hear Gwyneth say that, so matter-of-factly, without it feeling like it’s just another thing we’re expected to make time for, another thing we should be doing well. What happens when a hot bath or pedicure aren’t enough? Where is the guide that will lead us to real healing, in the moments we need it most?

These are the questions that inspired 17 contributors to tackle the meaning of self care—and the very related theme of caring for others—in their own lives. The result is a dynamic and surprising collection about the great search for our best selves.

Featuring work by Tallulah Fontaine, Winnie Truong, Anabela Piersol, Brooke Manning, Angela Lewis, Jessika Hepburn, Leah Horlick, Vicky Lam, Jen Spinner, Christina Yan, Adina Tarralik Duffy, Kathryn Bondy, Erin Klassen, Sofia Mostaghimi, Nada Alic, Naomi Moyer, and Mo Handahu.

You Care Too Much was released on November 16, 2016. This listing is from our second printing.

The shipment took few days longer than I expected but that's fine! I love the illustrations and layout of the book. Haven't read the book because just received it today. Hopefully, this will be an enjoyable read :)
