in the category of my top three books of all time is definitely this one. in short, it's the best memoir of a friendship i've found. i can read it again and again. so, the next time you're craving a really good read, I'd humbly suggest "truth & beauty." p.s. if ann patchett's name is ringing a bell, she's most well known for bel canto.
p.s. this book was just picked at real simple's book club!
