First, Kathryn Schulz found love: she met Casey, the woman who would become her wife. Eighteen months later, she lost it: her father died. In this moving memoir, Schulz—a Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker writer—explores the ways that losing and finding love intertwine to make a life. It’s a tonic for anyone who’s been consumed by grief—and then marveled in joy, which itself can feel like loss all over again when you experience it without the person you miss. —Angela Haupt
