From one of the most-viewed spoken word poets of all time, a collection exploring loneliness, anxiety, and longing-and finding peace, and even joy, in unexpected places

Sabrina Benaim, author of Depression & Other Magic Tricks , has connected deeply with readers and reached millions of viewers through her poetry, breaking down the stigma around mental illness. Now, she dives into challenging and universal territory- grief over a relationship's end, loneliness in a world under lockdown, and the anxiety of caring for a loved one from afar in the wake of a serious diagnosis.

Unfurling over the course of one month in 2020, in seventy-five original poems, I Love You, Call Me Back grapples with mental health struggles and the uncertainty of the moment and beyond. In isolation, Sabrina dares to embrace loneliness in all its permutations- the sorrow of getting your mother's voicemail when you call to say "I love you"; the bitter-sweetness when your dog takes up your ex's side of the bed; the joys of eating ice cream for dinner and singing badly, loudly .

In her raw and deeply relatable style, Sabrina reminds us to love our whole selves- you can't have joy without sorrow, and being anxious or depressed doesn't mean you can never be happy. In her words, "Sometimes self-care is just surviving." And that's okay. Sabrina shows us that there's beauty and courage in that, too.
