Description
(First Edition, Autographed) The host of her own hugely popular talk show on National Public Radio since 1979, and accustomed to interviewing figures from Barack Obama to Fred Rogers before some 2 1/2 million listeners every week, Diane Rehm here offers a deeply personal and moving memoir about feeling essentially alone after the death of her husband of 54 years. John Rehm's unnecessarily extended death from Parkinson's disease culminated in his taking matters into his own hands, simply refusing to take water, food, and medication—and spurred Diane into becoming a leading advocate for the "right to die" movement that is slowly taking shape in our country. Both practical and inspiring, Rehm's book describes her struggle to reconstruct her life without John, coping with the inevitable practical issues and, more important, with the profoundly emotional ones as she creates a new reality for herself while clinging to memories of the past. Her focus is on her own roller-coaster experiences, but she has also solicited the moving stories of such recently widowed friends as Roger Mudd and Susan Stamberg, illuminating a remarkable range of reactions to the death of a spouse. We have acquired a very limited number of this first edition, with a tipped-in autograph page signed by Rehm.
