Overview

"This elegy celebrates the last years of a happy marriage filled with travel, art, food, and ultimately illness and death. It is at once a travelogue, a record of the finest meals and museums Europe has to offer, a chronicle of family relationships during medical crises, and the story of how, after his wife's death in 1998, the author emerged from grief to enjoy life and travel once again." This is a book about the pain of illness and death, but it is also about the joy of remembering those we have loved - and our surprising capacity to thrive after intense loss.
