Praise for Health and Safety

“No one writes about contemporary American life—about drugs, sex, dating, madness—with as hard an edge as Emily Witt. Health and Safety is a masterpiece of observation and analysis. Read it if you can.”—Keith Gessen

“I found myself deeply jealous of Emily Witt. Why didn’t I spend the last 8 years dancing myself into an alternate, psychedelic universe? It seems after all to be the only sensible response to the fractured disaster that is the contemporary world. Witt, with a gimlet eye and a voice that never shies away from the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it makes us, offers a tour of the years that begin with the surreal catastrophe of the 2016 election and through the Covid years and the murder of George Floyd, giving me insight to a time that all too often feels like a nightmare that has, like all dreams, begun to fade from memory. This remarkable book didn’t just allow me to relive that time, but helped me to understand it.”—Ayelet Waldman
