Her is the already (ahead of it's release) very well-reviewed memoir of one woman struggling to make sense of the world in the wake of her identical twin's tragic and untimely death. Written with "grace, emotional honestly, and self-possession" (Publisher's Weekly), Christa Parravani's writerly debut sounds like it will live amongst such great memoirists as Mary Karr, Dorothy Allison, and Lucy Grealy, among others. "The best memoirs should come with a warning label, the kind that makes you take a deep breath before you open the cover.... Christa Parravani carries us with her into the excavation of what it means to keep living, a lost twin and [as] a woman digging herself out of her sister's loss. That she comes out the other side is never predictable — merely miraculous." - Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina
