Friendship in its most honest form submitted by ginarae3 on August 14, 2020, 9:54am I read Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy years before I read Truth & Beauty. I didn't even realize the two books were related. Truth & Beauty was a beautiful tribute to a complicated and meaningful friendship. The writing is excellent and heartfelt.
