Reviews
"Although he writes of an unimaginable family tragedy, Vincent Granata's Everything is Fine reads like a testament to life itself. Suffused with emotional depth and intellectual inquiry, this is a writer pushing the very limits of what language and love can capture: the suffering, certainly, but more so the astonishing power of forgiveness and survival. This book will never leave you." --Rachel Louise Snyder, author of No Visible Bruises: What We Don't Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us
"Granata's memoir of profound family tragedy is a monument to the work of remembering...In candid, smoothly unspooling prose, Granata reconstructs life and memory from grief, writing a moving testament to the therapy of art, the power of record, and his immutable love for his family." --Booklist
"Riveting...Granata writes with compassion, reflection and unsparing honesty." --BookPage (starred review)
"Moving...a memoir of an entire family--and a tragedy that forever changed its members." --New York Post
"Tender, emotional." --People
"Candid and carefully argued, Granata's memoir helps us better understand the horrors of mental illness." --Kirkus Review
"Granata's skills, as a writer and former English teacher, shine here; he not only brings a personal perspective to living alongside a family member with mental illness, but also shows that there isn't a right way to grieve. A welcome memoir." --Library Journal
