The book that the late David Rakoff completed just before he passed away last August, Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish, will be published on July 16. It sounds wonderful.
Ira Glass to The New York Times:
Its dirty little secret is that David was probably a better novelist than he was an essayist. I mean, he was a great essayist, famous and all that, but that came so hard to him, and I think writing this, writing drama, gave him so much more pleasure.
An interview with Rakoff here. And a remembrance here.
