I have loved William Wharton since he stole my heart with Birdy. He breaks it now with his own true story. I loved the way he used the voice of his daughter to allow us to know her fully. His images of bereavement are so clear and direct that we know grief even if we have never personally experienced it. Taking photographs in the morgue is something I did in this book for the first time, and can only hope it will also be the last. It was brutal, loving, passionate, and nearly obsessive.
