Harper Perennial 2005 0060572159 / 9780060572150 Paperback Very Good 
Ann Patchett and the late Lucy Grealy met in college in 1981, and, after en rolling in the Iowa Writers' Workshop, began a friendship that would be as defining to both of their lives as their work. In Grealy's critically accla imed memoir, Autobiography of a Face, she wrote about losing part of her ja w to childhood cancer, years of chemotherapy and radiation, and endless rec onstructive surgeries. In Truth & Beauty, the story isn't Lucy's life or An n's life, but the parts of their lives they shared. This is a portrait of u nwavering commitment that spans twenty years, from the long winters of the Midwest, to surgical wards, to book parties in New York. Through love, fame , drugs, and despair, this is what it means to be part of two lives that ar e intertwined . . . and what happens when one is left behind. This is a tender, brutal book about loving the person we cannot save. It is about loyalty, and being lifted up by the sheer effervescence of someone who knew how to live life to the fullest.
