"An unidentified white man was struck and instantly killed by a Metro-North train last night,' reported the July 24, 2008, edition of The Riverdale Press. This man was named Harris, and The Guardians - written in the years after he escaped from a psychiatric hospital and ended his life - is Sarah Manguso's heartbreaking elegy for Harris.Harris was a man who "played music, wrote software, wrote music, learned to drive, went to college, went to bed with girls.' In The Guardians, Manguso grieves not for family or for a lover, but for a best friend. With startling humor and candor, Manguso paints a portrait of a friendship between a man and a woman - in all its unexpected detail - and shows that love and grief do not always take the shapes we expect them to.- For readers of Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking and Ann Patchett's Truth & Beauty
