really liked it
bookshelves: psychiatry-and-psychology
Read in December, 2011

A very poignant description of a loving relationship and the grief that follows the loss of a spouse. I expect Jamison to get into a discussion of her grieving process sooner, but the majority of the memoir foreshadows the grieving with a careful description of the relationship that preceded it. I think this description was necessary to appreciate the grieving, though I was expecting to read more about the grieving than the romantic description of their marriage, but the balance was more tipped in the other direction.
