Crave: Important Artifacts… By Leanne Shapton

How do you remember a relationship after it has ended? By letters sent? Photos from vacations? Recipes from desserts eaten together? In Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry (Sarah Crichton Books), author Leanne Shapton recounts the relationship, from beginning to end, between fictional characters Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, through an auction catalog of items amassed during their time together. It’s compelling, yet heartbreaking, to see how they fall apart, as shown through notes, emails, gifts, books, photos, and clothes that are up for (fictional) sale at the Strachan & Quinn auction house.
