"Sign me up for the Katie Haegele fan club. Whether she's deciphering untranslatable phrases or figuring out what to wear to a Slut Walk protest, her writing is honest and generous, and alive to the transcendent possibilities of language.” —Marilyn Johnson, author, The Dead Beat and This Book Is Overdue!
“Quirky, revealing, and most definitely unique, [Haegele's] distinctive, seemingly artless, and nakedly honest voice draws readers into her memoir.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
“Less like a book and more like a letter from a friend, a friend who knows all about the art of the rummage and the nuances of reviewing yard sales. It's a truly joyful read but also tinged with sadness and grief, in the way happiness is in real life. When you relate to another person, they have history: an amalgamation of grief, nostalgia, pain, and also happiness. This book will stay in my life for a long time.” —Razorcake
“Since words do not exist in a vacuum, it seems to make sense then that it is poetry's fictions that can resurrect these dead words. Still, being a well-conceived project doesn't necessarily mean the result would be engaging. That they are attests to Haegele's tal-ents…witty, charming, and/or beguiling.” —Eileen Tabios, Galatea Ressurects online magazine
"Part memoir and part intellectual ruminations on language, how we use it, and how it has changed, Slip of the Tongue will please anyone who fancies themselves a logophile or linguistics genius, or even just someone looking for a good, fun book." —Ashley Houk, Utne Reader
"tangible, loving and imaginative." —Jenna Freedman, jennafreedman.tumblr.com
