It is a story about displacement and loss, and about the tangled nature of relationships between parents and children and between language and love. 2) "Naked Sleeper" (1996) - Compelling, emotionally charged, and written with the psychological precision and exquisite detail that are among the hallmarks of Nunez's work, "Naked Sleeper" is about the inescapable and sometimes unendurable complexities of love and the family drama. 3) "Mitz: the Marmoset of Bloomsbury" (1998) - an enchanting novel in the form of a biography of Leonard and Virginia Woolf’s pet monkey--capturing with astonishing detail a most beloved era in literature and offering a rare look at the domestic life of one of the most prominent couples of the day. 4) "for Rouenna" (2001) - an unforgettable novel about truth, memory, and unexpected heroism, is also a remarkable and surprising new look at war. 5) "The Last of Her Kind" (2006) - "Sigrid Nunez once again creates characters of such depth and situations of such vivid moral complexity that reading these pages is like living them." Margot Livesey. 6) "Salvation City" (2010) - A story of love, betrayal, and forgivness, blending the deeply affecting story of a young boy's transformation with a profound meditation on belief, heroism, and the true meaning of salvation. 7) "Sempre Susan: A Memoir of Susan Sontag" (2011) - Published more than six years after Sontag's death, "Sempre Susan" is a startlingly truthful portrait of this outsized personality, who made being an intellectual a glamorous occupation. 8) "The Friend" (2018) - Elegaic and searching, "The Friend" is a meditation on loss and solitude and a celebration of the transfiguring power of human-canine devotion.
