    After her mother died of cancer at the age of fifty-five, poet, essayist Meghan O’Rourke found that nothing had prepared her for the intensity of her sorrow. In the first anguished days, she began to create a record of her interior life as a mourner, trying to convey the paradox of grief – its monumental agony and microscopic intimacies – an endeavor that ultimately bloomed into a profound look at how caring for her mother during her illness changed and strengthened their bond. O’Rourke’s story is one of a life gone off the rails, of how watching her mother’s illness – and separating from her husband – left her fundamentally altered. But it is also one of resilience, as she observes her family persevere in the face of immeasurable loss. Further Reading. 306p.
