Nothing was the Same by Kay Jamison

Nothing Was the Same is the memoir of a very happy marriage through the cancer diagnosis and, ultimately, death of the husband as told by his wife, who wrote an earlier and very interesting memoir of what it’s like to be bipolar (An Unquiet Mind, highly recommended!) Here she talks about her marriage, her wonderfully attentive husband and his practical sense even when facing death, and how grief is, in the end, an entirely sane reaction.

It could be a very sad book, and certainly there are sad parts to it, but it’s actually quite inspiring.
