Literary Pick (****)

A Death in the Family
-James Agee

One of my biggest fears is losing my partner in the same manner Mary lost Jay. I guess you could say it's one of the reasons I wanted to read this book. It's one of those novels that really hits home, and stirs up your deepest and darkest fears. My favorite part of the novel was when Mary's father pulled her to the side after Jay's death, and gave her the most tender words of solace and advice a father could give a daughter at a time like that. It most definitely was a depressing read, but very insightful, and will stay with me always.
