Booklist Reviews 2016 October #1

Shortly after Leiris' wife, Hélène, was killed in the November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, he wrote an open letter on Facebook declaring that he and the couple's 17-month-old son, Melvil, would not give those responsible for her death, and that of so many others, "the satisfaction of our hate." The moving letter went viral, was picked up by news outlets, and inspired strangers far and wide to send their support to Leiris' sadly shrunken family. In a different life, journalist Leiris would have chosen fiction for his first book, he says, but instead he writes this in the raw days that follow: the date- and time-stamped goings-on of his and Melvil's new life, which feels like another family's story. Though fresh realizations of despair await their every step, Leiris chooses to focus on his wife's absence, and how they'll deal with it: "What would I be telling Melvil if I placed the responsibility for the circumstances of our life at someone else's feet?" This powerful one-sitting read speaks of a very specific grief to which many in the world feel connected. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.

On November 13, 2015, Leiris's wife was killed with 88 other people at the Bataclan Theater in Paris. As Leiris said three days later in an open letter to his wife's killers, which he published on Facebook, "On Friday night you stole the life of an exceptional person, the love of my life, the mother of my son, but you will not have my hate." Here he expands on a message that immediately went viral.

Here is a short and brilliant meditation on grief and loss as experienced in the immediate aftermath of tragedy. On November 13, 2015, Leiris lost his wife, Hélène Muyal-Leir, in a terrorist attack at the Bataclan Theater in Paris. Hélène was also survived by their 17-month-old son, Melvil. It was the need to take care of Melvil, and to not allow the terrorists to "have his hate," that made it necessary for Leiris to continue. As should be expected, this is a very raw book—Leiris says he began composing it just days after the attack—and as such provides tremendous insight into the early grieving process. VERDICT Leiris is to be commended for not providing easy answers nor engaging in the platitudinous language that too often infects memoirs of this sort. This is necessary reading for all of us.
