Publisher's Summary

Nothing Is Okay is the second full-length poetry collection by Rachel Wiley, whose work simultaneously deconstructs the lies that we were taught about our bodies and our beings, and builds new ways of viewing ourselves. As she delves into queerness, feminism, fatness, dating, and race, Wiley molds these topics into a punching critique of culture and a celebration of self. A fat positive activist, Wiley's work soars and challenges the bounds of bodies and hearts, and the ways we carry them. 

Contains mature themes.

Okay

Rachel has a lovely way of writing but its just not a style I prefer. I relate to some but not a lot of the poems so though I can appreciate their composition this title is just not for me. She really conveys her message well and obviously brings the tone to life better than anyone else since she wrote the book. Worth a good try but ultimately not my favorite.

Powerful and soul touching, Rachel is my hero.

So much more powerful to hear Rachel read her work to me than reading it myself. I can relate to so many of her poems deeply.
