When everything slips away, what do you hold on to?
A beautifully written memoir that doesn’t blink from talking about the death of a loved one. It is unapologetic, un-euphemistic, and unafraid.
Following a long fight with cancer, Tracy’s death ended their thirteen-year marriage. In the months immediately following his loss, Frederick Marx writes about their time together, falling in love, their shortcomings, and how they made each other better people. Marx recounts his relationship with his partner–not as saint, but as person. Then he describes his own struggle to go on without her.
Marx shares an intimate, soul-searching look at love and loss. With exquisite openness and honesty, his story is full of pain, but it also includes the grace and beauty he experienced on that journey.
Ram Dass, author of Be Here Now, said: “This book shivers with the frailties of what it means to be human, enfolding loss in all its forms, finding a way through acceptance and the pure ground of being back to love.“
