Autobiographical short essays on "what a 25 year old girl has learned". From my 50 something perspective, how much can that be and why does she feel compelled to put EVERYTHING out there, in much the same manner as her HBO show GIRLS. Entertaining at times.  Not That Kind of Girl

In this charming story, limping and stuttering Aaron leads a satisfying, but staid life working in the family's publishing business. He is married to busy, serious and self-reliant Dorothy. Following her untimely death a grieving Aaron has visions and conversations with Dorothy. Gradually he is awakened and lifted to a new appreciation of life. He lives in the moment and becomes spirited. The details, large and small, move him, change him and enrich his life.  The Beginner's Goodbye
