What Bobby McIlvaine Left Behind

This is one of the best magazine pieces Iโ€™ve seen in years. It begins with: A death, a diary, and a fight over who gets to read it. It explores the complexities of grief, in language that is raw and detailed and personal and empathetic, and just overall beautiful. A long read, worth every minute (if you prefer to listen, thereโ€™s an audio version available).
