Lost & Found: A Memoir

  • From the Publisher
September 1, 2021

Eigh­teen months before Kathryn Schulz’s father died, she met the woman she would mar­ry. In Lost & Found, she weaves the sto­ry of those rela­tion­ships into a bril­liant explo­ration of the role that loss and dis­cov­ery play in all of our lives. The result­ing book is part mem­oir, part guide­book to liv­ing in a world that is simul­ta­ne­ous­ly full of won­der and joy and wretched­ness and suf­fer­ing — a world that always demands both our grat­i­tude and our grief. A staff writer at The New York­er and win­ner of the Pulitzer Prize, Schulz writes with curios­i­ty, ten­der­ness, eru­di­tion, and wit about our finite yet infi­nite­ly com­pli­cat­ed lives. Lost & Found is an endur­ing account of love in all its many forms from one of the great writ­ers of our time.
