An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination: A Memoir (Roughcut)

An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination - Elizabeth McCracken McCracken's writing is beautiful, and her memoir of this period in her life and this loss is so honest. Apart from being an excellent read on its literary merits, it taught me how to be a friend to someone going through this loss, should it be needed. Like most people (like McCracken herself, as she explains in the book), I somehow thought it was a different kind of loss. Of course it isn't. What a humane book.
