So Long, See You Tomorrow, by William Maxwell
“Maxwell’s masterpiece, which weighs in at a mere 144 pages, contains as much life, range, and depth of emotion as its 1,000-page
counterparts. It made me think that what is left unsaid can be as powerful as the words on the page.”
Recommended by Ann Patchett, the author of eight books, including the novels Bel Canto ($17, amazon.com) and State of Wonder ($16, amazon.com).
