    I have long been a fan of David Rakoff's work on NPR. This novel

    I have long been a fan of David Rakoff's work on NPR. This novel shows off even greater writing ability. The story spans decades with characters coming into and out of each other's lives. There is a section on AIDs that is heartbreaking. I found the book fascinating and well written.

    This is the definition of a swan song. That unmistakable Rakoff

    This is the definition of a swan song. That unmistakable Rakoff voice (whether written or spoken) nearly sings these verses, his last writing on earth. Hearing this Seussian rhyme, I suddenly realized what has bugged me about Rakoff all these years - he was born to narrate Seuss. And now he takes the Seussian rhyme to places it was meant to be - sarcasm, cynicism, with compassion and a calm urgency - that Seuss did not take it. Reading this book, or hearing it read by Rakoff himself, is a joyous farewell to a unique and loving writer.
    You must have this book in your library. Lend it out, but demand that it be read and heard and cared for, then returned to you, because you will need it again. Rakoff should not be able to disappear from your life - not that easily.

    Highly Recommended

    This is just amazing. I'm a David Rakoff fan but thought this might be a bit "twee" and gimmicky. It's just delightful. Sorry you are no longer with us, my friend.
