My new memoir, Together: Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap, will be published by Nan A. Talese/Doubleday in February 2019.
To relieve his back pain, my husband had an epidural (a procedure so routine it’s given to women during childbirth). The minute the needle pushed into his spine, he was paralyzed from the waist down. That’s the starting point for my book, which looks at the changes every couple faces — the slow, ordinary ones and the sudden, dramatic ones. Identities shift, roles switch — how do we adjust?
This is a story about the life we dream of and the life we make.
Warmly — and with great gratitude for your interest,
P.S. Here’s what people are saying about Together.
