How She Died, the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship winner, is a shattering book - a fierce, resistant, cruel, self-destructive and extreme rejection of mortality and a partial attempt to show that we die the way we live. And even, as now, when forces clearly beyond our control preempt our destiny, Mrs. Yglesias seems to be saying something about the mode of action we can choose - individual or collective, private or public, sordid or (ironically) saintly. All of this potentiates the book with a kind of consuming commitment which overrides judgment (one is really too exhausted to exercise any).
