This is the happiest story in the world with the saddest ending,"
writes Elizabeth McCracken in her powerful, inspiring memoir. A
prize-winning, successful novelist in her 30s, McCracken was happy to be an
itinerant writer and self-proclaimed spinster. But suddenly she fell in
love, got married, and two years ago was living in a remote part of France,
working on her novel, and waiting for the birth of her first child. This
book is about what happened next. In her ninth month of pregnancy, she
learned that her baby boy had died. How do you deal with and recover from
this kind of loss? Of course you don't--but you do go on. This sad yet
joyful memoir is truly beautifully written. Tonight at 7PM.
