Reviews
Comfort is novelist Ann Hood's utterly harrowing, completely spellbinding memoir of losing her five-year-old daughter, Grace, to a rare form of strep in 2002. . . . [A] spare, gorgeously serpentine narrative. . . . Unforgettable.-- "Elle"
Comfort enriches our lives. . . . I will most likely never eat pasta with butter and Parmesan or cucumbers cut in perfect rounds . . . without thinking of Ann Hood and her daughter. And I have never met either one.-- "Los Angeles Times"
Hood is larger than life, living, loving, and grieving on an operatic scale.-- "New York Times Book Review"
In graceful prose, Comfort bears witness to the heartbreaking particularity of her--of any--loss.-- "People"
