Half a Life by Darin Strauss
Half a Life

Miss Heidi, January 29, 2011

I love reading memoirs but I'm also very picky about what books I read. 'Half A Life' is on my top 10 list of best memoirs. The phrase "we can try our human best in the crucial moment, and it might not be good enough" is the line that made me pick up the book and then I couldn't put it down. I wish I could use words as beautifully as Darin Strauss does. His writing is genuine and wonderful.
