Grief (Hyperion)
Andrew Holleran has written a beautiful, somber novella about loss. His narrator has come to Washington, D.C. (the white mausoleum city) to teach a course about AIDS literature. He is grieving the death of his mother and finds solace in the letters of Mary Todd Lincoln. In this conversation, we discuss the book’s essential theme: the possibility of living in a state of permanent grief.
