Review

"Passionate and moving... beautifully written... the truth that emerges in this book has less to do with the mystery of [Aura's] death... than with the miracle of the astonishing, spirited, deeply original young woman Goldman so adored... So remarkable is this resurrection that at times I felt the book itself had a pulse." --The New York Times Book Review

"To call Francisco Goldman's book about the death of his young Mexican wife an elegy hardly represents it. Lament is closer, but insufficient. It is a chain of eruptions, a meteor shower; not just telling but bombarding us in a loss that glitters. With the power and fine temper of its writing, it is as much poem as prose... Tense set pieces, respectively heartbreaking and chilling... generate the book's propulsive drama. What they propel, though, is its most remarkable achievement: the incandescent portrait of a marriage of opposites." --Boston Globe

"We may feel we know something about love's burn, the scorching heat of loss, but reading this book is to stand in front of a blow-torch, to take a farrier's rasp to raw nerve ends. Say Her Name is wrenching, funny, powerful, and beautiful." --Annie Proulx

"This is a beautiful love story, and an extraordinary story of loss. Say Her Name has a forensic honesty, a way of treating each detail, each moment, each emotion, with detailed and exact care. It also has a way of holding the reader, of moving between Brooklyn and Mexico City, capturing the essence of two worlds, capturing the essence of two people who were lucky enough to fall in love."
--Colm Toibin

'It's the must-read novel of the summer... both a beautiful evocation of love and loss, and a searing dispatch written from within a personal Ground Zero.' --Sunday Times

'It leads the reader into Goldman's private underworlds, and somehow, sure-footedly, manages to navigate a way out.' --Observer

So remarkable is this resurrection that at times I felt the book itself had a pulse.' --New York Times Book Review

'We may feel we know something about love's burn, the scorching heat of loss, but reading this book is to stand in front of a blow-torch, to take a farrier's rasp to raw nerve ends. Say Her Name is wrenching, funny, powerful, and beautiful.' --Annie Proulx

`What makes Say Her Name so unforgettable, apart from the beauty of the writing, is that the book is written partly as a love story but also partly as a moral trial.' --Evening Standard

Book Description

In the summer of 2007, Francisco Goldman's young wife Aura died suddenly on a beach in Mexico. Say Her Name is the novel born out of this personal tragedy-an extraordinary tale that weighs the unexpected gift of love against the blinding grief of loss. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
