Review: "Remnants of Passion" by Sarah Einstein

Remnants of Passion is a collection of essays that examine one woman’s search for love, sex, and a sense of belonging from adolescence into middle age. It’s equal parts queer and quotidian, ranging in its focus from lesbians fighting over the politics of penetration to first kisses, from apologies never made to a marriage held together with spaghetti.

My Review:
Normally, I would only post about fiction books, however this one was special and an exception.  It's a short read, but a very powerful one.  I laughed, cried and sighed all through the book. 
The prose had a stong voice that really spoke volumes, despite the fact that the writing was quite simple.  I really felt empathetic in
every situation, like I really was there experiencing it.  It really reflects life and love, but also plights of insecurity, misunderstanding, and mistakes.  Although a change of pace from my usual reads, I really loved this book. Sarah Einstein definitely lives up to her surname with this masterpiece.
