They say you can’t go home again. But when her father is diagnosed with aggressive lung cancer and her mother with atypical Alzheimer’s, New York-based actress Kate Mulgrew returns to her hometown in Iowa to spend time with her parents and care for them in the time they have left. The months Kate spends with her parents in Dubuque - by turns turbulent, tragic, and joyful - lead her to reflect on each of their lives and how they shaped her own.

This second offering by Kate Mulgrew is fierce in its honesty. She once again lays bare a part of her life so poignantly. Every person will be able to identify with this interesting and beautiful story of her parents journey and how she and her siblings have been shaped by both of them. Her writing inspires you to marvel at her strength and resolve, letting you know if she can bear the intolerable, you can too. As always, I am looking forward to her next writing endeavor.
