“I Miss You When I Blink,” by Mary Laura Philpott.
This collection of essays/memoir is so, so good. Mary Laura succinctly articulates feelings you’ve had, but have maybe been unable to find the words for. (Her essay about being Type A is great.) This book is funny, wise and intelligent, and reading it feels like talking to a friend. Read it!
