This page doesn’t cross-list all my various posts about writing and books (which you can find by using the “Categories” on the right side of the main page). Rather it’s intended to highlight the beautiful works that I’ve featured here, especially writing that make us cry, or that examine the experience of crying. (I know, sometimes they are even funny.) If you have more suggestions, please send them my way, and I’ll add them to this list. What novels, stories, memoirs, poems, or other writing make you cry? Or evoke powerful emotions?
