I just finished reading, " The opposite of loneliness : essays and stories" by Marina Keegan. I know we are not supposed to judge a book by its cover. But in this case, the book cover was the reason why I opened the book and started reading a few random pages.
Then of course, I was hooked.
The book cover is the picture of the author herself.
This book is a collection of short stories and essays, both fiction and nonfiction.
Marina writes beautifully.
I like her quote about writing: " Don't get too attached to things. It only took a minutes to write that sentence."
It got really sad when I found out the fate of the author.
Marina Keegan died in a car accident just few days after graduating Magna cum Laude from Yale university in 2012. She was only 22 years old.
Opposite of loneliness is the last essay she wrote for the Yale Daily News.
Signing off until next Monday- Panteha
