Ann Patchett
800.92 Patchett Pat

Patchett (The Patron Saint of Liars; Bel Canto; Run) tells her story chronologically, in bursts of dialogue, memory and snippets of Lucy Grealy's letters, moving from their deep connection in graduate school into the more turbulent period beyond, through success, heartbreak and addiction. This extraordinary memoir shows us a friendship notable for its tenderness, passion, and dysfunction.
