    Grief is, by and large, a private and intimate thing We utter a few platitudes and then turn away in discomfort from who are laid bare by their grief And emotionally, we begin to withdraw.Francisco Goldman shatters those boundaries in his devastating book Say Her Name, forcing the reader to pay witness to the exquisite and blinding pain of a nearly unbearable loss He positions the reader as a voyeur in a most intimate sadness, revealing the most basic nuances and details and the most complex Grief is, by and large, a private and intimate thing We utter a few platitudes and then turn away in discomfort from who are laid bare by their grief And emotionally, we begin to withdraw.Francisco Goldman shatters those boundaries in his devastating book Say Her Name, forcing the reader to pay witness to the exquisite and blinding pain of a nearly unbearable loss He positions the reader as a voyeur in a most intimate sadness, revealing the most basic nuances and details and the most complex ramifications of the loss of someone dear.And in the process, he captures our attention, rather like Samuel Coleridge s Ancient Mariner, until the reader is literally as fascinated and transfixed with Aura Estrada Francisco Goldman s young and doomed wife as he himself is It is a masterful achievement, hard to read, hard to pull oneself away from The barebones of his story are these Francisco...
