Judy Goldman - Together


Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap

published by Nan A. Talese/Knopf Doubleday and Anchor Books

Now available in paperback

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.

Honest and compassionate, Goldman’s book is a life-affirming story that celebrates the grit that goes into making a long-term marriage work. A moving portrait of ‘young love turning into old love’ in the face of unexpected life challenges.
