Read in November, 2011

I generally find that anything this author writes is worth picking up, and I'd been curious about this one for a while. So, when I found it at the library, I checked it out. This was a good book: a pithy and often poignant mediation on grief and the many ways that bodies and hearts betray us. The documentation of the process of mourning a person you have alternately loved and feared rang especially true. The artwork acts as an integral component to the story; you couldn't have one without the other.

Glad I finally happened upon this one.
