"Save Send Delete" is a "Masterpiece" "deserves to be placed in the canon of great literature comprising the very best of contemporary theological introspection and thought"

Danusha Goska offers a book that sparkles with wit, charm, and - most importantly in this epistolary form, unbridled honesty.

To say too much would be to rob you of the pleasure - the addictive pleasure - of allowing yourself to slip into the world in which Mira resides; one of determination, of curiosity, of hurt, of triumph ... all of the things human beings have in common, but are sometimes difficult to reckon with, including not only the wonder of love, but the pursuit of its meaning. Whether or not I agreed with all of Mira's conclusions, I was mesmerized by Goska's mastery of the English language and her breadth of knowledge.

Save Send Delete does not patronize or proselytize. It requests, perhaps even demands at times, that the reader consider his or her own pleasures, pains, and prejudices in matters of faith. For that reason and for many more, I have no reservations about saying I believe it deserves to be placed in the canon of great literature comprising the very best of contemporary theological introspection and thought. If the course of time determines otherwise, it has ignored a great contribution.

God Bless You, Danusha Goska. I felt a kinship with Mira. I was moved deeply. Every laugh and every tear afforded me the opportunity to visit myself at my best and at my worst. Thank you.
