Say Her Name by Francisco Goldman

Say Her Name is Francisco Goldman's fictional memoir of his romance and short marriage to the much younger Aura Estrada. Two years after they were married, Aura died in a body surfing accident. This novel not only chronicles her life and their short time together, but the depths of his grief and his desire to keep her memory alive. Goldman revels in telling her story, and questions his role in her accidental death. Say Her Name has received positive reviews with the Boston Globe saying, "To call Francisco Goldman's book about the death of his young Mexican wife an elegy hardly represents it. Lament is closer, but insufficient. It is a chain of eruptions, a meteor shower; not just telling but bombarding us in a loss that glitters. With the power and fine temper of its writing, it is as much poem as prose."
