Product Description

Ann Patchett and the late Lucy Grealy met at college in 1981, and after enrolling in the Iowa Writers' Workshop, began a friendship that would be as defining to both of their lives as their work. In Grealy's critically acclaimed memoir, Autobiography of a Face, she wrote about losing part of her jaw too childhood cancer, years of chemotherapy and radiation, and endless reconstructive surgeries. Here, in her first nonfiction work, Patchett's Truth & Beauty isn't Lucy's life or Ann's life, but the parts of their lives they shared. This is a portrait of unwavering commitment that spans twenty years. Tender, brutal, the book is about being lifted by the sheer effervescence of someone's will to live.
