Rena Lesué earned a reputation for caustic and compassionate honesty from her prose in Superstition Review, Pinball, and The Washington Post. How We Die is a collection of essays that explore topics of depression, abuse, & death. In "Lamb," Lesué shines a light on childhood trauma caused by a car accident resulting in the decapitation of a man, and "On a Platter" outlines the expansive damage of sexual abuse and how her religion's victim-blaming paradigm made it all worse. The set ends with "How We Die," a snapshot of how a depressive spouse affected her life and the lives of her two children.
