Personal. Readers who love finely written essays will find lots of them in the collection from Meghan Daum titled, The Unspeakable: And Other Subjects of Discussion. The opening essay, Matricide, captures the personal voice that Daum brings to each essay: a disclosure that couldn’t care less about the judgment of others about her behavior. Some essays are deadly serious and others are hilarious. Each is well-written and contains at least a kernel or two of wisdom.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
