Donna RifkindAlthough it's as brief as the previous book, this one ranges farther afield and asks bigger questions. It's not a memoir but a meditation—an expression of the formal feeling that follows great pain—and it's not so much about grief as about grief's evolution over time…If Making Toast was an act of ingathering, this book is an act of de-accessioning, a send-off on a funeral boat out to sea, a valediction. It reaches out, but it resolves nothing, and that, exquisitely made, is its point.
