"You may never look at that lamp the same way again after reading this evocative memoir..." O, The Oprah Magazine "This endearing memoir takes an assortment of otherwise ordinary possessions and turns it into a series of delicate, resonant stories" More magazine "'Sometimes things shatter,' Dawn Raffel writes in The Secret Life of Objects. 'More often they just fade.' But in this evocative memoir, moments from the past do not fadethey breathe on the page, rendering a striking portrait of a woman through her connections to the people she's loved, the places she been, what's been lost, and what remains. In clear, beautiful prose, Raffel reveals the haunting qualities of the objects we gather, as well as the sustaining and elusive nature of memory itself." Samuel Ligon, author of Drift and Swerve: Stories"Dawn Raffel puts memories, people and secrets together like perfectly set gems in these shimmering stories, which are a delight to read. Every detail is exquisite, every character beautifully observed, and every object becomes sacred in her kind, capable hands. I savored every word. Priscilla Warner, author of Learning to Breathe My Yearlong Quest to Bring Calm to My Life

Dawn Raffel is the executive articles editor of O, The Oprah Magazine and the former fiction editor at Redbook. Her work has been published in a variety of periodicals and has been widely anthologized.
