    Outstanding!! by Anita P. (Lutherville, MD) - Administrator of Play Book Tag
    There will inevitably be comparisons of "A Box of Darkness" to "The Year of Magical Thinking" by Joan Didion, but I just think this book is even more breathtaking. Brady is completely honest. Her frankness shines a flashlight on her lengthy marriage in a way that just lets you feel every ounce of her pain, confusion, and deep abiding love for her husband. That she does this in a literary and beautifully written way is just icing on the cake. Loved it! Made my favorites list for 2010. Will definitely be recommending it to my Play Book Tag membership.
