Cold Comfort, by Christy Lorio

**Due to a large increase in orders, we have run out of stock and have ordered another print run expected to arrive around mid-December. Orders may still be placed in the meantime. Please contact us if you have any questions.**

This collection of essays and photographs offers a glimpse into one person's ongoing experience with cancer: its physical ailments, its lingering effects. In the process, Christy Lorio pulls back the curtain for a visceral perspective of the ways we are constantly tethered to our bodies—as well as how we may hope to live fully within their limits.

In order to help support Christy's family, $5 from every copy sold will go directly to them. So far, we have raised over $2,000 (as of November 30, 2022).

Christy Lorio (1980-2022) was a writer and photographer based in New Orleans, LA. In 2021, Christy was a fellow at Arizona State University's Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writing Conference. Her writing has appeared in Had433 Magazine and Oxford American, among other places. Her photography has been seen in publications such as Vice News and In These Times. Her fine art has been shown in galleries both internationally and nationally, including The Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Good Children Gallery in New Orleans. Christy earned an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of New Orleans.
