This powerful memoir by New York Times bestselling author Amy Bloom is an illuminating story of two people whose love and shared life experiences led them to find a courageous way to part--and of a woman's struggle to go forward in the face of loss. "What a book this is--full of everything that matters . . . gripping, moving, and beautifully told."--Meg Wolitzer, author of The Female PersuasionAmy Bloom began to notice changes in her husband, Brian: He retired early from a new job he loved; he withdrew from close friendships; he talked mostly about the past. Suddenly, it seemed there was a glass wall between them, and their long walks and talks stopped. Their world was altered forever when an MRI confirmed what they could no longer ignore: Brian had Alzheimer's disease. Forced to confront the truth of the diagnosis and its impact on the future he had envisioned, Brian was determined to die on his feet, not live on his knees. Supporting each other in their last journey together, Brian and Amy made the unimaginably difficult and painful decision to go to Dignitas, an organization based in Switzerland that empowers a person to end their own life with dignity and peace. In this heartbreaking and surprising memoir, Bloom sheds light on a part of life we so often shy away from discussing--its ending. Written in Bloom's captivating, insightful voice and with her trademark wit and candor, In Love is an unforgettable portrait of a beautiful marriage, and a boundary-defying love.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Amy BloomPublisher: Random HousePublished: 03/08/2022ISBN: 9780593243947Pages: 240Weight: 1.25lbsReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 10/01/2021 pg. 21Publishers Weekly 11/08/2021Kirkus Reviews 12/01/2021Library Journal 01/01/2022 pg. 69
