A Break for Good Writing

Another brilliant flash essay from Brevity: “Too Soon” by Joan Wilking.  We absolutely need more literature about loss and aging (says me, who’s fast approaching oldtimerhood).  Wilking’s prose captures an amazing amount of personal history (from several characters) in only a few paragraphs.  And her prose is gorgeous.

Her bio says this is her first nonfiction publication.  Best Envy, Joan.  Best Envy.

(If you’re interested, some further commentary from Wilking is here.)
