About this product
- DescriptionRefering to him by his nickname Cometa-Catalan for comet -, Imma Monso tells us about the sudden loss of her husband and, using an original structure combining A chapters - A for affection, amusement, acceptance -and B chapters- B for barbarous, brutal, bare -she bears witness to her life with him, and to her life without him. On a par with those by Didion or Oates, this memoir falls into that category of books on mourning where the blazing beauty of true love and moving remembrance keeps at bay the worst of griefs.
