Letters, diaries, and journals.
Sarah Manguso$14.00 $12.88
"Sarah Manguso has kept a daily diary for nearly nearly thirty years. Ongoingness is neither a collection of these diaries, nor even a compendium of selected entries, but is rather a reflection on what the act of keeping the journal has meant to her, her lived experience, and her understanding of life and mortality. This is a slim volume, but one well worth savoring and returning—both for Manguso’s language, and for her observations of the human experience" - Read D.

Sarah Ruhl and Max Ritvo$16.00 $14.72
"Sarah and Max are(/were) such incredibly thoughtful and incisive writers, which comes through as much in their letters as in their poetry or plays. They write about the world and each other with full hearts and a deep sense of empathy. I know that this will be a book I’ll return to, both for the sheer beauty of their writing, and to continue to mull over their conversations about life, death, religion, and art." - Read D.
