A beautiful, well written story about a friendship, Truth and Beauty is rarely easy to read, and is always impossible to put down. This literary memoir by author Ann Patchett (Bel Canto; State of Wonder) explores her long-term close friendship with writer Lucy Grealy (Autobiography of a Face), who struggle with Ewing's Sarcoma as a child, unending surgeries throughout her life (38) to reconstruct her face as a result of the disease, and ultimately her stuggles with addiction.
