A Carnival of Losses: Notes Nearing Ninety

Words. Fans of fine writing will be delighted by Donald Hall’s book titled, A Carnival of Losses: Notes Nearing Ninety. There are short and long reflections in this book, about people and places, that are so beautifully written in an unwavering voice that I found myself savoring the word choices and the wisdom of what is being recalled. His writing about his late wife, Jane, was profound and conveyed his deep pain of loss. Many of us lose our filters as we age, and what comes out orally or in print is painfully honest. Even in the lightest vignettes of this book, Hall shows off his great skills as a writer, an original and talented voice.
