Overview

A haunting, original eStory from Jennifer Weiner.

When Eleanor Goode meets Gerald King, she's a senior at Wellesley who's won all the writing prizes. He's just published his first novel, Dirty Blond, and is well on his way to becoming one of the literary lions of his day. Gerry seduces Ellie, spinning her a fantasy of working with him, two writers, side by side. How could she have known that, in their years together, it would be one typewriter, not two; his words, not hers? How she would become the fetcher of coffee, the holder of trinkets fans would press into his hands after readings, the keeper of his legacy.

A Memoir of Grief (Continued) begins with Gerald’s death. Ellie, who hasn't written more than a grocery list in decades of marriage, had no intention of writing a memoir. It's not until she realizes how broke he left her that she decides to write a whitewashed account of her life with the Great Man of Letters. Widow's Walk spends over a year on the New York Times bestseller list. Critics hail Ellie's talent, the revelatory way she writes about grief, and how to live through it.

Ellie enjoys the attention, but happily thinks that'll be the end of her literary career—until her agent starts asking about another book…

Another mystery quirky e-short story from Jennifer about Gerald’s death and Ellie who has not written in forever and then after her husband’s death she decides to write a memoir—(she lived a miserable life with this man). Pay back is heck…Lots of twists and turns --a little on the dark side and a little haunting. (great for Halloween).

These books rarely disaapoint, except that they often end a bit too quickly.
