Off the Shelf

In Praise of an Ordinary Life

The first memoir by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, who died on March 13 at age 51, uses the word “death” only once. I know this because the endpapers include a list: How Many Times Certain Words Appear in This Book. “Cool” appears 22 times, “really” 69, “awkward” and “weird” both six. “Love” gets 78.
