Year Of Magical Thinking

Just finished it yesterday. It was OK, though it could've been shorter by 50-60 pages. I found myself most intrigued at the beginning and how she reacted to the death of her husband. It's a very detailed account and it makes you really feel like you were there with her. But then it gets repetitive and the most interesting parts were about their lives as writers. But even these were too abbreviated, since she was trying to focus on the grief and how the past fit into this "year."

She should write a memoir (maybe she has) of what it was like to live as a writer, it sounded awfully interesting.
