Just beautifully written, even sometimes funny, despite the grim subjects. I'll have to read more from her.

Sloane Crosley is one of my favorite writers. She is an essayist in the Nora Ephron, David Sedaris tradition. I have read everything she has had published which includes 2 books of fiction. I enjoy her non fiction more. This book is a tough one because it deals with the suicide of her best friend and former boss Russell. He was 52 when he died by hanging himself. Sloane had no inkling of anything that would have led to his suicide. Crosley uses the loss of jewelry that occurred the month before Russell's death to create a tie in between the loss of possessions and loss of people. She uses her amazing writing ability to create humorous lines that are gems and soften the subject matter but doing so without taking away from the profound loss of her best friend. Reading a book like this helps give you perspective in dealing with something that we all have to face. She does a great job of letting feel how important Russell was to her and all his good and bad.This book is a good introduction to Crosley because you get to see her great writing while getting a lesson on grief.… (més)
