Reviews

"An extraordinary and important book." --Oliver Sacks

"Remarkable . . . [A] brave, elegiac work. Both hopeful and terrifying, it's a tale of love's resilience, but also its limits in conquering the sudden cruelties of life . . .A haunting meditation on a love more enduring than the body or mind, and . . . a potent reminder that even an irreparably altered life is still a life to be cherished." --Renee Graham, The Boston Globe

"This is the story of great love forged when death almost parts you and then doesn't--a book that will take its place next to those slender volumes that become tattered and torn as I read and reread and reread, as if my own life depended on it. To Love What Is is Alix Kates Shulman's masterpiece." --Honor Moore, author of The Bishop's Daughter

"This remarkable book speaks openly and honestly and with exquisite poignancy about the durability of love." --Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon
