Niequist (Cold Tangerines) returns with an often humorous and always contemplative series of personal essays on bittersweet experiences, illustrating through her own life that rejoicing is no less rich even when it contains a splinter of sadness. Spiritually, the book bravely sets out to decipher the paradoxically co-dependent nature of happiness and grief. But Niequists title should not be seen as simply a convenient theological metaphor; i t is also a literary device. Impressively, many of Niequists perfectly concocted chapters weave in culinary themes, evoking the sensory, physical experience of the bittersweet along with the spiritual sense of it. When writing of deep friendship and the loss that sometimes accompanies it, her narrative often revolves around a dinner table, a cooking club, or a farmers market. Niequists ability to describe the sensation of eating a peppery arugula salad punctuated with sweet blueberries is just as evocative as her ability to express the intricacies of love, loss, hope, and doubt. Readers of all faiths will find this book courageous, sincere, poetic, and profound. Theres nothing bitter in this sweet treat of a spiritual memoir. (July)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
