Lost & Found by Kathryn Schulz 236 pages

Pulitzer Prize winner Kathryn Schulz has written a memoir that is divided into three parts. The first section “Lost” describes her reaction to the death of her father as well as how the concept of loss and grief is experienced historically and psychologically. “Found” zeroes in on Kathryn finding love, how it affects her and some others’ experiences of discovery. The third part is titled “and.” It not only describes Schulz’s life now but also the history of the ampersand and other interesting anecdotes.

This memoir is not for everyone, but I found it fascinating, hugely informative and extremely well-written. Schulz is such a good writer that I would probably read anything she has written, even if the subject didn’t interest me.
