Abby Zimet

A lovely, moving farewell to Lou Reed from Laurie Anderson - on "the person I loved the most in the world" and the 21 years "we tangled our minds and hearts together." From Rolling Stone.

"I had gotten to walk with him to the end of the world. Life - so beautiful, painful and dazzling - does not get better than that. And death? I believe that the purpose of death is the release of love."
