The Opposite of Loneliness — Marina Keegan

If I had to choose a book of the year, it would be this one. From the first essay in this perfect collection, through to the last word, this book was a pleasure to read. Warm, human, pertinent, this is the one and only collection of Keegan’s work. It was assembled by her parents after she was tragically killed in a car accident shortly after graduating. Her writing is better than mine will ever be.
