Joanna Cantor

Praise for ALTERNATIVE REMEDIES FOR LOSS

“In Joanna Cantor’s first novel, a young woman grieving her mother finds herself grappling with an unexpected secondary loss: her sense of her place in the world. So begins Olivia’s quest for solace and purpose, a journey that will lead her through toxic love affairs and Indian ashrams and places in between. Funny and sad, sharp and true, Alternative Remedies for Loss kept me reading late into the night, riveted by the unfolding of a life.” 

Maggie Shipstead, bestselling author of SEATING ARRANGEMENTS and ASTONISH ME

“With this sharp and lovely debut, Joanna Cantor weaves a spell of what it feels like to be unmoored by grief but also by the mysterious process of becoming an adult. This is a sexy, smart, and subtly moving book about youth and loss and, ultimately, grace.” 

Joanna Hershon, author of A DUAL INHERITENCE

Alternative Remedies for Loss is a tender, juicy novel about family, failures, and finding one’s place in the world. Bright, unpredictable Olivia captures perfectly what it feels like to be young and searching, all while caught in the psychic whirlpool of grief. Get ready to fly through this book, and be prepared for Cantor’s prose to charm and surprise you the whole way.” 

Molly Prentiss, author of TUESDAY NIGHTS IN 1980
