“Eugene Onegin made me want to move to Russia and Little Women made me want to have sisters. GROUP made me want to rewind a decade, sit with a number of strangers and one shamanic doctor, strip down and survive. This unrestrained memoir is a transporting experience and one of the most startlingly hopeful books I have ever read. It will make you want to get better, whatever better means for you."
– Lisa Taddeo, New York Times best-selling author of Three Women
"Group sucked me in and never let go. Real transformation is not for the faint of heart, and in these pages Christie Tate captures her evolution in all its misery and hilarity, along with the beauty of bearing witness to one another as we grow. Group reminds us that we are hurt by other people, but we can be healed by them too. Damn, I want to join a group now."
– Sarah Hepola, New York Times best-selling author of Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget
"It takes courage to bare your soul in front of a therapist, but when you add six strangers to the mix, it becomes an act of faith. In GROUP, Christie Tate takes us on a journey that's heartbreaking and hilarious, surprising and redemptive--and, ultimately, a testament to the power of connection. Perhaps the greatest act of bravery is that Tate shared her story with us, and how lucky we are that she did."
– Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
"In breathtaking bursts of beauty and vulnerability, Christie Tate's GROUP dares to tell the story of a body from the inside out. There is a place between pain and joy and her body is the word for it. This book will remind you how to come back to yourself even when you want to give up, make you laugh, make you cry, help you breathe. This book will save lives."
– Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Verge and The Misfit Manifesto
'Every page of this incredible memoir by Christie Tate had me thinking, “I wish I had read this book when I was 25. It would have helped me so much!”'
– Reese Witherspoon
‘Readers be warned: this is like a far dirtier Sex And The City, and at times you might feel like a voyeur. On the other hand, the writing is brilliantly sharp and funny and, above all, truthful.’
