Seen Reading: Dear Gabriel

Share |

If you haven't read Seen Reading yet, take a look today. It is an absolute joy. This week, Seen Reading gives a beautiful mini-review for Dear Gabriel. In the words of Julie Wilson, Seen Reading’s creator, “I don't use this space to post reviews, but this is an exception. Dear Gabriel is beautiful, brave and necessary. Freihow magnificently captures the tension between his need to reason--to open his world wide, using his language--his role as caregiver to young Gabriel, and the needs of Gabriel who requires reason delivered in a language so specific it must be cut up like bits of meat on a plate. I've scribbled out and emailed more passages from this book than any other in recent history. It's hard and honest and inspiring and loving. Best of all, it shows up. It's family.”
