Overview

"Chris Gerolmo manages to record his thoughts and feelings with heroic honesty. The result is not only transcendent, but surprisingly funny. You won't forget a single entry, I promise." - Steven Soderbergh, Director

"Chris Gerolmo's Death for Beginners is a heart-wrenching, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic book about losing his wife to cancer. There are lessons for all of us in his pain, the way he coped, and the desperate love he showed for his wife and their children in the face of an incurable disease. The book makes you stop and think-- and even occasionally laugh - about the things we take for granted in our lives, and in the lives and departures of our loved ones. From A to Z, it's a soul-searching chronicle of a death foretold that offers hope, and sustenance, with a remarkable absence of empty platitudes, for all of us." - Bruce Feirstein, Vanity Fair Contributing Editor

"This is a small book with a huge heart. The writing is raw, with a depth, intelligence and wit that makes the reader forget the brutal sadness of its subject. It's a beautiful love letter to a dead wife. A cathartic, brutal, honest, infuriating love story." - Christopher Kennedy Lawford, author of New York Times bestselling memoir-Symptoms of Withdrawal

"I loved Death for Beginners. I love it for its beauty and horror and power and wisdom. There is nothing else quite like this book which demands to be published, in my humble opinion." - Bruce Eric Kaplan, artist, The New Yorker
