Epilogue: A Memoir | [Anne Roiphe]

Epilogue: A Memoir

Weaving between heartbreaking memories of her marriage and the pressing needs of her new day-to-day routine, Roiphe constructs an elegant literary pastiche, not of grief but of renewal. She begins her memoir just as the shock of her husband's death has begun to wear off and writes her way into the then unknown world of life after love. In beautifully wrought vignettes, Roiphe captures the infinite number of "firsts" that lie ahead.

Publisher's Summary

Weaving between heartbreaking memories of her marriage and the pressing needs of her new day-to-day routine, Roiphe constructs an elegant literary pastiche, not of grief but of renewal. She begins her memoir just as the shock of her husband's death has begun to wear off and writes her way into the then unknown world of life after love. In beautifully wrought vignettes, Roiphe captures the infinite number of "firsts" that lie ahead, from hailing a cab to locking and unlocking the door, to answering responses to a singles ad placed by her daughter.

What the Critics Say

"Lorna Raver captures the tone of one who is bewildered by all that has happened but who is trying to persevere against irreconcilable feelings of loss." (AudioFile)
"An unflinching and unsentimental story of widowhood's stupefying disquiet, of surviving love and living on." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Skip it."

    I feel bad saying anything negative about someone's grief. This is full of writing cliches, too wordy. It's as if she tried too hard to wax poetic. The narration was awful for this type of book. She'd be better suited to Dick and Jane.
