The Running Body Reviewed in Still

July 9, 2024

Thank you to Still and reviewer Lucien Darjeun Meadows for this positive and comprehensive review of The Running Body, the award-winning debut memoir by Emily Pifer. Of Emily’s book, Lucien says:

Throughout, The Running Body is urgent, immediate, and grounded in Pifer’s specific experiences with lyric intensity. “What happened? You are asking. Be more clear, you are saying. But I have been wanting to show you what looking at this wound looks like to me.” We look. We dwell in the wound, wounds, wounding—and we see, with Pifer, how making story can be both a wounding and a path toward what might come after.
