``At once intensely personal and universal, Gould's book goes beyond the memorable pieces she has contributed to the New York Times 's `Hers' column. She describes her life as a daughter, wife, mother, widow and grandmother in prose that is exquisitely simple, unsentimental and powerfully moving,'' reported PW. (July)
