Summary
A haunting meditation on mortality, grief, and loss. Perhaps no one but Kay Redfield Jamison could bring such a delicate touch to the subject of losing a spouse to cancer. She looks back at her relationship with her husband, Richard Wyatt, a renowned scientist who battled dyslexia to become one of the foremost experts on schizophrenia. She describes his death, her own long, difficult struggle with grief, and her efforts to distinguish grief from depression. Wryly humorous anecdotes mingle with bittersweet memories of a relationship that was passionate and loving in this psychological study of grief viewed from deep inside the experience itself
