The Year of Magical Thinking

I just love her writing. She is one of the most talented authors I’ve read, and one of my all time favorites. I find myself reading and re-reading anything she writes about New York over and over again. I started this one not knowing what it was about (it’s about the year after her husband passes away suddenly) and oh man, it did an emotional number on me. It gutted me. I cried more than once reading it. If you’ve experienced a big loss, I wouldn’t read it right now… but add it to your list as it’s beautifully written and touching.
