Editorial Reviews

A moving, funny novel about a Type-A advice columnist dying of cancer and determined to go out in the best way possible, whether that means asking her children to color her casket or finding her husband a new wife. As an author, she's even writing a book about the experience: The Household Guide to Dying. This is a listen filled with memorable moments, vivid imagery, and important messages about the end of life, which performer Heather Bolton narrates with delicacy and sensitivity.

One of the biggest selling titles of the year, now available in audio. A very special read that is guaranteed to make you laugh and cry.

Fresh, witty, deeply moving - and a celebration of love, family and that place we call home - this unforgettable story will surprise and delight the reader until the very last page.
