Sarah McColl with Molly Wizenberg
Sarah McColl’s Joy Enough (Liveright) is an indelible tribute to the joy and pain of loving well. Even as her own marriage splinters, she drops everything when her mother is diagnosed with cancer, returning to the family farmhouse and laboring over elaborate meals in the hopes of nourishing her back to health.
“Joy Enough is a diamond in book form, a beauty forged by the weight of loss and learning. It stunned me with its taut clarity, with the way it probes - quietly, gently, unflinchingly - the parts of life that a lot of us don't like to look at: death, divorce, the pleasures and pitfalls of the body. ...McColl has a rare talent, and it shines. --Molly Wizenberg.
