What we are reading in May: Lost & Found by Kathryn Schulz
Eighteen months before Kathryn Schulz’s father died, she met the woman she would marry.
In Lost & Found, she weaves the story of those relationships into a brilliant exploration of the role that loss and discovery play in all of our lives. The resulting book is part memoir, part guidebook to living in a world that is simultaneously full of wonder and joy and wretchedness and suffering–a world that always demands both our gratitude and our grief.
A staff writer at The New Yorker and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Schulz writes with curiosity, tenderness, erudition, and wit about our finite yet infinitely complicated lives. Lost & Found is an enduring account of love in all its many forms from one of the great writers of our time.
An olive branch to start a conversation.
The Gloss is so much more than a book club, we start the conversation around books – but it always leads to deeper more meaningful connection and provides the foundation for lifelong friendships. Join us and discover a wide variety of new books, new authors, new friends and enjoy a glass of wine all at the same time. We’re delighted to welcome you into The Gloss!
I would love to hear more information, when a new host for Birmingham UK has been found. I don’t have capacity myself with an extremely busy work life, but this sounds like exactly what I’ve been looking for!
We will be sure to let you know!
Hi there, this group sounds perfect and I hope you can find a new host soon! Please do let me know when it’s up and running again!
Would love to join the Birmingham club, not sure i’d be much good as the host as never done this sort of thing before but would love to join.
