Above Water is her memoir, a book she had in the works before the podcast came along and destined now to find a wider audience because of its impact. Kearney is a terrific writer, a Swiss army knife of styles and approaches. She is soulful and gentle when writing about her parents and her home (which is a character in and of itself). She is thoughtful and demanding when writing about her inner self and the hole she had to pull herself out of. She is disgusted and brimming with contempt for Gibney throughout.
