Wonderful Wasteland and other natural disasters

This is all I have to say:

This book is not to please anyone.
It is a book written with pain.
This is a book of love.
This is a book of death.
This book kept me alive.
This is a book that took me 11 years.
This is a book unfinished.
This is a book that I didn’t write: it wrote me.
This is the one book for my daughter and my sister RJ to remember me.
This is the book I gained when I let go of my losses.
This book is illuminated.
This is a book about dissolutions, a broken country, and broken people. This is a book of hope, because only when we have nothing, we are ready to have everything.

Eso es todo.
