A New York Times Bestseller

When NPR’s Scott Simon began tweeting from his mother’s hospital room in July 2013, his evocative and moving meditations spread virally. Their last days together produced a lifetime’s worth of memories laced with humor and exemplifying resilience. Now Simon expands on those stories to create a memoir that is rich, deeply affecting, and exhilarating.


Customer Reviews

"In this tender memoir, Simon finds the last week of his mother's life to be a time for them to cherish each other and tenderly reminisce. He takes his quirky, devoted, gracious mother on her own terms, and his work shimmers as a touching tribute."
