Book Title
The Big Book of the Dead
Marion Winik
"Every observation is a marvel, every sentence a heartbreak or a revelation of joy." --Ann Patchett, author of Commonwealth Marion Wink is esteemed for bringing humor and wit to that most unavoidable of subjects: death. At last, Winik's critically acclaimed, cult favorites Glen Rock and Baltimore Book of the Dead have been carefully combined in their proper order, revealing more clearly than ever before the character hidden throughout these stories: Winik herself. In The Big Book of the Dead, Winik arranges her arresting portraits of the dead chronologically, spanning "Friends of My Youth," "The Austin Years, including NOLA," "Glen Rock, PA, pop. 2050," and "Love in the Time of Baltimore." Featuring twelve additional vignettes--including remembrances of Anthony Bourdain and Philip Roth--along with a brand new introduction, The Big Book of the Dead continues Winik's work as an empathic, witty chronicler of life.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Marion WinikPublisher: Counterpoint LLCPublished: 09/17/2019ISBN: 9781640092532Pages: 320Weight: 0.60lbsSize: 6.90h x 4.20w x 1.00d
