Lost & Found, by Kathryn Schulz

Staff Pick

In this eloquent memoir, New Yorker writer Kathryn Schulz examines what it’s like to lose a loved one and to fall in love, reflecting on the profound transformations set in motion by both universal occurrences. The chapter on loss centers on the death of Schulz’s father. The chapter on finding focuses on her romance with the woman she ended up marrying—a romance that coincided with the passing of Schulz’s father. And a third chapter addresses what it means to connect and continue—the “&” in Lost & Found. But more than a record of overlapping personal grief and love, the book is a sublime philosophical reckoning of these seemingly opposite experiences, filled with penetrating observations and insightful forays into literature, poetry, and art
