ONGOINGNESS by Sarah Manguso

Sarah Manguso’s ONGOINGNESS was reviewed by Alice Gregory in The New Yorker, by Maria Popova in Brain Pickings, and also in BookReporter. Said The New Yorker, “In her almost psychedelic musings on time and what it means to preserve one’s own life, she has managed to transcribe an entirely interior world. She has written the memoir we didn’t realize we needed.”

Popova said, “A collection of fragmentary, piercing meditations on time, memory, the nature of the self, and the sometimes glorious, sometimes harrowing endeavor of filling each moment with maximum aliveness while simultaneously celebrating its presence and grieving its passage … Manguso produces an unusual meta-reflection that exudes the concise sagacity of Zen teachings and the penetrating insight of Marshall McLuhan’s “probes.”… A spectacularly and unsummarizably rewarding read in its entirety.” Graywolf published the book on March 3, 2015.
