"A painfully beautiful memoir telling how grandparents are made over into parents, how people die out of order, how time goes backwards. Written with such restraint as to be both heartbreaking and instructive." --E.L. DOCTOROW

"Roger Rosenblatt means, I believe, to teach patience, love, a fondness for the quotidian, and a deftness for saving the lost moment-when faced with lacerating loss. These are brilliant lessons, fiercely-learned. But Rosenblatt comes to them and to us--suitably--with immense humility. --RICHARD FORD

"Written so forthrightly, but so delicately, that you feel you're a part of this family... How lucky some of us are to see clearly what needs to be done, even in the saddest, most life-altering circumstances." --ANN BEATTIE

"[A] piercing account of broken hearts [that] records how love, hurt, and responsibility can, through antic wit and tenderness, turn a shattered household into a luminous new-made family." - CYNTHIA OZICK
