Reviews

"Elegant, painful, stunningly honest . . . huge [and] heartbreaking."--The New York Times Book Review

"Darin Strauss has spent a good part of his adult life reliving, regretting and reflecting on a single, split-second incident. Half a Life is a starkly honest account of that fateful moment and his life thereafter . . . penetrating, thought-provoking."--The Washington Post

"A book that inspires admiration, sentence by sentence . . . This is a memoir in its finest form, a fully imagined and bittersweet book that transcends a single misstep."--Chicago Tribune

"Painfully raw and beautifully written."--Los Angeles Times

"A remarkable, beyond-brave memoir."--O: The Oprah Magazine

"Lyrical and haunting."--San Francisco Chronicle

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND THE PLAIN DEALER
