Quotes & Awards

  • “Parravani succeeds in ‘writing Cara back to life’ and saving her own life in the process. No punches are pulled here, and Parravani’s matter-of-fact tone does nothing to shield readers from the enormity of her loss…Imagine looking in a mirror and not seeing yourself. Imagine living the rest of your life with half of yourself missing. Imagine looking at your own corpse. You don’t have to imagine: Parravani’s story makes it all clear.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Haunting…More than a beautifully written memoir. [A] powerful and raw love letter.”

    Washington Post

  • “A photographer and identical twin tells the intimately delineated, raw story of her beloved sister…A finely wrought achievement of grace, emotional honesty, and self-possession.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Christa Parravani powerfully transforms her anguish over the traumatic death of her troubled identical sister into the astonishing Her.”

    Vanity Fair

  • “Concise and captivating, Parravani’s prose paints her phoenix-like transformation such that the reader feels the flames of her fire. A poignant, book-arcing metaphor illustrates Christa’s battle to accept herself with a mirror-image. Raw and unstoppable, Her illuminates the triumph of the human spirit—both individual and shared.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “[A] haunting memoir…Parravani delicately probes the fragile, intimate boundaries among love, identity and loss.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Christa Parravani’s new memoir, Her, is a glimpse into the most intimate chambers of the identical twin relationship…Her is a tribute to the truly beloved, as well as a celebration of the push-and-pull between sisters.”
