The Opposite of Loneliness--#61 finished

The author, Marina Keegan, was a college student at Yale and 5 days after graduation she died in a car accident.  This book was compiled afterwards by friends, professors and family of her writing both stories & essays.   The first part is her fiction stories and then the second part is her non-fiction.  You can tell she was a talented writer, some very good stuff in here.  In reading this book and the enjoyment of the writing is almost tempered though with the underlying fact that she died far too soon.  We have missed the chance to read more and seen this writer develop, it is truly a loss and just sadness just kind of continues while reading.

The WL on this is around 99 I think so I will be mailing it off at some point.
