By Naomi Huffman

"In Once I Was Cool, Megan Stielstra is warm and open and wise. Whether she’s writing about the complex loneliness of early motherhood or failing to rise to the occasion or find the right language while living abroad, Stielstra is a masterful essayist. From the first page tot he last, she demonstrates a graceful understanding of the power of storytelling. What she’s truly offering with her words, is the grandest of gifts." 
- Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist and An Untamed State

Advance Praise:

"I read this book in two and a half hours. Then I started reading it again."
-Jamie Iredell, author of I Was a Fat Drunk Catholic School Insomniac

"What an amazing cri de coeur Once I Was Cool is. Megan Stielstra tells us in a witty, sympathetic, confident voice who she is and what and whom she cares about most. Reading these essays, I laughed out loud and also found myself on the verge of tears so many times. This book should be read by anyone who's been in love, had a child or thought about having a child. So, probably, that's everyone."
-Christine Sneed, author of Little Known Facts
