Traces the author's loss of her beloved long-time husband, her experiences with grief and widowhood, and her efforts to make new friends when her daughters place a singles ad for her in a literary journal. By the author of Water from the Well. Simultaneous.

Findaway World Llc
Weaving between heartbreaking memories of her marriage and the pressing needs of her new day-to-day routine, Roiphe constructs an elegant literary pastiche, not of grief but of renewal. She begins her memoir just as the shock of her husband's death has begun to wear off and writes her way into the then unknown world of life after love. In beautifully wrought vignettes, Roiphe captures the infinite number of 'firsts' that lie ahead, from hailing a cab to locking and unlocking the door at night, to answering responses to a singles ad placed by her daughter.
