There are few recent works of nonfiction of the quality of Kathryn Schultz’s Lost and Found. A blend of essay and memoir, it moves from the particular to the abstract, from the personal to the global, always with warmth, grace and elegance. Schultz’s intelligence gleams throughout the book, both in the associative range of her mind and in the construction of individual sentences. She invites us to think about both small losses and devastating ones, small findings and life-changing ones. In the centerpiece of the book, she recounts meeting—in an astonishing stroke of luck—the woman she would fall in love with. Rarely has a happy love been depicted so movingly but matter-of-factly—a refreshing change from the numerous sagas of angst and disappointment on offer in both memoir and fiction. Page by page, this book offers pure pleasure of many kinds. Not to be missed.
