This month, I recommended two children’s books for Writer’s Bone’s Books that Should Be on Your Radar. Just South of Home by Karen strong is a touching and adventurous middle-grade tale about family, friendship, and coming to terms with a painful past. (Stay tuned for our upcoming interview!) Emma and the Whale is a beautifully illustrated picture book about a girl who lives by the sea.

All the Lives We Ever Lived by Katharine Smyth (Crown Publishing)—memoir, biography, and love letter to To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf in one—is simply wonderful. I read it almost without taking a breath. In our interview, the author and I discuss Woolf’s writing, grief, and the art of the memoir.
