David Rakoff's final book before dying of cancer at the age of 47 is a original and refreshing series of interconnected stories chronicling live, love and relationships throughout the 20th century. In addition to David's poignant, acerbic, and witty storytelling skills, he has written the entire novel in verse, and included some beautiful illustrations by Seth. It's a gorgeous design for a sweetly powerful novel by a talented writer who left us far too early.
