Publisher's Description

La idea de Agridulce está cambiando mi forma de vivir, desentrañado y volviendo a entretejer la manera en que entiendo la vida. Agridulce es la idea de que en todas las cosas hay algo tronchado y algo hermoso, que hay un fragmento de claridad aun en las noches más oscuras, una sombra de esperanza en todo corazón quebrantado, y que el regocijo no es menos enriquecedor aun cuando contiene un poco de tristeza. Lo agridulce es la práctica de creer que realmente necesitamos lo amargo al mismo tiempo que lo dulce. Lo dulce es suficientemente sabroso, pero lo agridulce es hermoso, matizado, lleno de profundidad y complejidad. Lo agridulce es valioso, audaz realista. Lo agridulce la da un sabor especial a la vida.

Publisher's Weekly

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 Niequist’s title should not be seen as simply a convenient theological metaphor; i t is also a literary device. Impressively, many of Niequist’s 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 farmer’s market. Niequist’s 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. There’s nothing bitter in this sweet treat of a spiritual memoir. (July)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
