A poignant portrait of creative burnout and mental health struggles, Trista Mateer's newest compilation of poetry and art crafted in quarantine hits almost too close to home. A little over-sharing. A little pick-me-up. A little call-for-help. This collection is sure to resonate.
"[girl, isolated] was such a powerful little book. It made me cry and laugh and realize just how much I have been struggling to keep my head above water during this pandemic, and most importantly, it made me realize that I was not alone in any of this." –goodreads reviewer, Colleen
"Anyone that's been staying home this past year, watching all of the loneliness pile up at once, will recognize the feelings expressed in this collection. This is a return to Mateer's early work, when she could be found shouting into the Tumblr void, while including the visual art and truisms she's become so well known for on Instagram. There's a little something for everyone." –goodreads reviewer (and author of The Surrender Theory), Caitlin Conlon
"Trista's rawness and truthfulness and vulnerability is something that I love about them and their work. They have a way of writing that even I, the reader, can feel. Definitely one of my favorite poets." –goodreads reviewer, Taylor
"Saying girl, isolated is about the COVID-19 pandemic exclusively isn't quite right. It's about being a creative person alive and trying to make sense of the world during an unprecedented time. It's about isolation, loneliness, and trying to take care of yourself and heal in a time where everything in the world is on fire. [...] Like the rest of her work, I 100% recommend Trista Mateer's newest collection girl, isolated. It's absolutely necessary, essential poetry reading [...]." –goodreads reviewer, Lola
