really liked it

I recall reading the excerpt in the New York Times when this book was first published. I as blown away. And then I read the entire book. It is a strange book, an almost clinical look at the death of a beloved spouse.And yet emotion kept leaking through the stark sentences. For me, that made the book even more emotional. A writer trying to look objectively at a subject which can't help but be personal. I thought it was extraordinary.
