Hailed as one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, NPR, Time, Publishers Weekly and The Washington Post, In Love is a powerful tale about the part of life we shy away from discussing: its ending. Yet in Amy Bloom’s insightful and eloquent hand, and with her trademark wit, this memoir about helping your life partner die with dignity is ultimately a riveting tribute to boundary-defying love.
Upon the release of the memoir’s paperback version, we will be joined by social worker, psychotherapist and writer Amy Bloom, Director of the Shapiro Center at Wesleyan University, author of five novels, three collections of short stories and a nonfiction volume about individuals outside the gender binary. She is also creator of Lifetime’s State of Mind.
