David Rakoff: You Will Be Missed

So sad to learn of the death of essayist, David Rakoff.

Neurotic, funny, observant, warm. I imagine I knew him.  I always bring the audio version of one of his books when I travel anywhere I might be stuck somewhere uncomfortable for a long time. Just listening to his voice reading his essays, makes almost everything okay.

To his family and friends: thanks for encouraging him to share his thoughts with the world.
