Ten books to make you cry for days

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Ester Bloom recommended ten books that may make you cry for days, including:
About Alice, by Calvin Trillin

Trillin’s wrenching, straight-from-the-heart tribute to his late wife. It received such acclaim when it first appeared in the New Yorker that it was put out as a standalone book. And, though it will make you laugh, it will also make you cry like a fifteen-year-old watching Titanic, wondering whether you will ever experience a love so pure.
