Every single chapter of this stunning book deserves to be read out loud, but for today’s On My Nightstand, I chose one of my favorites, Lady Of The House. Ronit’s writing has been featured in The Rumpus, The Atlantic, The Iowa Review, American Literary Review, The New York Times, and elsewhere. Her memoir When She Comes Back, about the loss of her mother to the guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and their eventual reconciliation, was named Finalist in both the 2021 Best Book Awards and the 2021 Book of the Year Award. Her short story collection Home Is A Made-Up Place won Hidden River Arts’ 2020 Eludia Award and will be published in 2022. She created the podcast And Then Everything Changed and in Spring 2022 will launch the limited series podcasts The Body Myth and Let’s Talk Memoir. She is a creative nonfiction editor at The Citron Review and lives in Seattle with her family.
