Overview

A beloved NPR radio host speaks about the death of her husband of fifty-four years--and of her struggle to reconstruct her life without him--in an eloquent, deeply moving book that "invite s] comparisons to Joan Didion's own memoir of loss, The Year of Magical Thinking" (The Guardian).

John Rehm was 74 when he was diagnosed with Parkinson's. Nine years later, he passed away, having made the difficult choice to end his extended illness by refusing to eat, drink, or accept medication. This process transformed Diane into an advocate for increased conversation end-of-life care and the right to die on one's own terms, as well as a brave and sympathetic voice for anyone who must learn how to live again after bereavement.
