The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This collection is unusual in that it's a mix of nonfiction essays and fiction short stories. The author died as a passenger in a car accident just days after she graduated from college, and her parents and teachers picked which of her writings to include in this collection. It's a decent collection for a 22-year-old. What's remarkable though is how almost all of the pieces deal with death. The collection could as well be called The Opposite of Death. I think and read about death a fair bit, but she still gave me some new things to think about.
