The Book of Goodbyes is once again named a “Best Book of 2013,” this time by NPR Books, which placed the collection in categories “Poetry & Short Stories,” “Let’s Talk About Sex,” and “Seriously Great Writing.”

This year’s NPR “Best Book” list (online) is a “choose your own adventure,” where readers can explore more than 200 standout titles selected by NPR staff and critics, and read about why they love them.

According to Craig Morgan Teicher’s recommendation for The Book of Goodbyes, “Jillian Weise … is a force of nature. This collection follows up her debut, The Amputee’s Guide to Sex, with what happens when sex becomes love that just won’t go away — no matter how unsuitable the beloved seems to be. This is love poetry for the 21st century: hot, hip and heart-rending.”

The Book of Goodbyes was also named a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2013.”
