My wife and I exchange books on Christmas. I've finished the first, Lulu Miller's, Why Fish Don't Exist: A Story of Loss, Love, and the Hidden Order of Life.
It's rare I wish a book were longer. But I wish that of this book. It is actually three books in one -- at twice the length it would still have been pure pleasure.
I'm not going to say a whole lot about this book; I don't want to spoil it for anyone, even by suggestion. Suffice it to say that somewhere about mid-point, my jaw dropped, and I was transfixed. By the book's end, I had made a new friend. I'll be looking for more of Ms. Miller's work in years to come.
Here's how much I like the book: Buy it. Read it. If you don't love it, I will buy your copy to sell in my bookshop, Whitlock Farm Booksellers, in Bethany, CT. Give us a call at 203.393.1240
