Nancy Pearl listed McSweeney’s Half a Life as one of her favorite memoirs ever published!
Darin Strauss ended a classmate’s life in high school. Half a life later, culpability, anguish, and regret still penetrate his every thought.
This book was conceived after Strauss’s first public mention of the accident on one of the most popular episodes of NPR’s This American Life.
