What I’ve Read
Splitting the Difference: A Heart-Shaped Memoir by Tré Miller Rodríguez



 



I’ve been reading Tré’s blog for a long time now, so I knew I would love this memoir — I just didn’t realize how much I’d love it. She is so honest with her feelings and never apologizes for any of them. It’s a refreshing, honest look at love and grief and all of the complicated emotions that come with that. In the first 50 pages, I cried three times, laughed a few others, and missed my stop on the T because I was so engrossed. I felt like I knew Alberto after reading this book; it came alive to me. This is Tré’s gift to the reader — that she can allow you to know her husband even though you’ve never met him. It’s a testament to her strength as a writer, and her love and devotion to Alberto. Reading Splitting the Difference is like chatting with your best girlfriend, and feeling lighter for having had the conversation.
