Lost & Found

Lost & Found

This week, I fell in love with a new memoir by Kathryn Schulz. Centered around the death of her father and meeting her future wife, she explores the universal themes of losing and finding. Profound and beautifully written, making me pause and admire a sentence every few pages. Some of my favourites:

  • We are never smaller and the world never larger than when something important goes missing.
  • In the microdrama of loss, we are nearly always both villain and victim.
  • To be bereft is to live with the constant presence of absence.
  • My happiness was so enormous it was like an entire third person standing there.
