This wonderful, moving memoir had me in tears from the outset. It really reminded me of Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking. Listen to this on your own, away from any distractions. Highly recommend.
What disappointed you about Say Her Name?
The personal failed to transcend and become universal.
What could Francisco Goldman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Goldman could have been a little less obsessed with diarising the relationship, and put more effort into a philosophical approach to the tragedy, thereby placing it in the broader scheme of his life.
Any additional comments?
Goldman's untrammeled adoration for his young wife prevented us from seeing what there actually was to adore. A little less telling, and a lot more showing could have made it more believable.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would read it, not listen to it.
What didn’t you like about Robert Fass’s performance?
He had a brittle, perfectionist way of speaking that did not capture the character -like an English teacher or speech therapist instead of an actor. The material is very somber and sophisticated and his chipper, clean patter interfered with my being able to enjoy it.
Did Say Her Name inspire you to do anything?
read the book if I ever have time.
