By Dawn Raffel - Friday Aug 18, 2017
In the middle of the journey of her life, Anne Gisleson felt lost — not so much in a dark woods, a la Dante, but at home in New Orleans with a metaphysical hangover. Her persistent dread was the aftermath of trauma: Hurricane Katrina piled onto the grief of losing two of her sisters. But friends were also grappling with the humbling disorientation of loss — divorces, deaths, midlife with its echo of endings, past and future. Rather than grab the remote, a pill or the usual self-help nostrums, Gisleson went for the hair-of-the-dog-that-bit-you cure. When an angsty friend suggested they hash out some philosophical ideas, the Existential Crisis Reading Group was born.
