The Pulitzer-prize winning New Yorker writer, Kathryn Schulz, showcases her literary breadth and originality in this brilliant meditation on losing, finding, and the “&” that connects the two. Starting with the etymology of the words in her title—lost, found, &--she evokes literary, historical, and philosophical references that speak to grief and love as universal human experiences. Schulz is bravely revelatory as she weaves in her own story, describing how her devastation over the loss of her father also had a reciprocal effect:she fell deeply in love. As readers of her work know, her writing is unfailingly elegant and moving; her story of the magic of finding true love is in a class by itself.
