a family story

Richard Ford writes

Roger Rosenblatt means, I believe, to teach patience, love, a fondness for the quotidian, and a deftness for saving the lost moment–when faced with lacerating loss.  These are brilliant lessons, fiercely learned.  But Rosenblatt comes to them and to us–suitably–with immense humility.

Ann Beattie writes

Written so forthrightly, but so delicately, that you feel you’re a part of this family, Rosenblatt’s writing turns a story that might be too uncomfortable to read, or too sentimental, in the direction of simple facts that require sophisticated, but instinctual, responses.  How lucky some of us are to see clearly what needs to be done, even in the saddest, most life-altering circumstances.
