Praise for Will Boast and Epilogue:
"Don’t let the title of Will Boast’s magnificent memoir fool you. Epilogue is about beginnings as much as endings, discovering as much as losing family. It’s honest, heartbreaking, gorgeously written, and hands down the most moving book I’ve read this year." -- Anthony Marra, author of A constellation of vital phenomena
"Family tragedy leads to almost unbearable darkness but also renewal and hope for a young man in this excellent memoir… Boast writes with unsparing clarity, in precisely observed domestic scenes that reveal mountains of unspoken feeling… A finely wrought, wrenching yet lyrical study of a family that lives on past its seeming end." -- Publishers Weekly starred review
"This remarkable memoir is written with extraordinary care, intelligence and honesty. Though the material is powerful to begin with, what makes it work so well is its authorial voice: a rare combination of rawness and restraint, probing and delicacy, self-laceration and tenderness toward others. In short, it's fully alive." -- Philip Lopate, author of Portrait Inside My Head
