The BookLook: The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan

by Gemma Pearson

The last time 22 year-old Marina Keegan saw her parents, she said “I will live for love and the rest will take care of itself”. Five days later, she was dead.

The BookLook: The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan

With such a defining statement at it’s heart, you may wonder how a posthumous book could possibly help fulfil this promise made by their daughter.

It doesn’t. It surpasses it with every exquisitely delicate word written.

Collated by colleagues, friends and family, The Opposite of Loneliness is a stunning collection of Marina’s work demonstrating a profound maturity of prose, bound with detail, optimism, beauty and love. Marina’s loved ones didn’t need to look far to make sense of her intentions – every piece she had written showed that love was in abundance in her dazzling soul.

In this illuminating book of her most precious essays and stories, she has left a deep and far-reaching legacy of optimism, fearless love and a spirited call to follow one’s dreams.
