"A startling and eloquent meditation on death and bereavement." -- Spin "A memoir that is stand-out superb." -- Esquire "Forceful, authentic and full of a kind of ethical and aesthetic clarity." -- New York Times "One of the most life-affirming books I have read ... brims with humanity, irreverence, and invigorating candor." -- The Nation "Lynch's vivid prose has the electricity of writing that tells us what is going on in the secret places of the community-and the secret places of the heart." -- USA Today
