Ongoingness: The End of a Diary

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.
