You Are All a Part of Me 

This hybrid memoir/collection of essays is about people. My people. In the midst of a pandemic, my people are at the forefront of my mind -- my people, and time. There are friends I consider family who live in Europe and I have no idea when I will be allowed to see them again. There is a biological relation who I will never see again. There are mentors who literally changed my life, and students whose impact never left. There are New Yorkers and Floridians, and there is immeasurable loss. What you get to take with you when you leave this earth is the following: what you did, how you lived, who you loved, who loved you. All the people that made you — for better or worse — who you are. People matter to me, and time: the finite time you have with your people, and the finite time they have with you.

Praise for You Are All a Part of Me:

"del Rosso navigates the sense of the split between our veneer of whole- ness and completion that people see compared to the internal sense of fragmentedness that we so often feel."
