The Opposite of Loneliness.
The book, The Opposite of Loneliness, is a moving compilation of Marina Keegan's work from her time at Yale. This book of essays and stories, all written by Marina herself, is her legacy left behind after her tragic death just five days after graduation. Page after page, The Opposite of Loneliness teaches us the importance of having passions and dreams, and living them out while we still have the time to do so. Through this book, we are still able to hear Marina's voice and be inspired by how she used her short time to be passionately, vibrantly, and fully here.
How do you mourn the loss of a fiery talent that was barely a tendril before it was snuffed out? Answer: Read this book.
[Keegan] was one of the most present, incisive, and hopeful writers.. That's the gift and the pain of her book. How incredible, how lucky, that we get to read her words, that people who never knew her or her work can find it for themselves.
