The Long Goodbye Book Excerpt:

The Long Goodbye: Dementia Diaries discusses a disease that is both personal and social for more than five million patients and their families and friends in the United States today. Now that there are medical strategies for preventing and/or curing strokes, heart attacks, even cancer, many more people are going to live into the dementia years in the near future. Although many dementia horror stories circulate in conversation and in the media, they are not the whole story. Creative approaches to loving a dementia patient can make for a valuable learning experience for family and caregivers. In The Long Goodbye Margaret Miles describes her commitment to making--rather than passively suffering--her spouse's dementia experience. Family and friends who accompany patients find embedded in the experience moments of great beauty, hilariously funny incidents, new companions, and life insights. The narrative provides both a travelogue and suggestions for a richly meaningful life passage for all participants. The Long Goodbye seeks to supply a balanced picture of a disease usually represented as unmitigated loss.

The Long Goodbye Book Excerpt:

A poignant first-person account about two things many women fear the most: breast cancer and the tragic loss of a spouse. It's a story that raises the age-old question: How does a person hold on to faith when terrible things happen, one after another? Carole Jones gives an answer-not a simple formula or pat response-but a wisdom refined in the crucible of pain. Her story, The Long Goodbye, is a graceful memoir of her struggle with breast cancer, her husband's tragic bicycling accident, and the saga that followed as he slowly slipped away in a persistent coma. How Carole and her family hold on to their faith is a remarkable story, told with piercing candor, grace, and, ultimately, great joy. It is a must-read story for every woman facing cancer or life-threatening illness or for anyone who has lost a spouse.

The Long Goodbye Book Excerpt:

About the Book We all have very special memories of our daddy. He was the first man we ever loved and we did everything we could possibly do to make sure he was cared for. For nine months we did a rotation and stayed with him and kept him at home until it was no longer physically possible. We stood together and made the decision to place him in an Alzheimers facility. We fought every battle we could for him. We loved him physically and emotionally until the last breath that he took. He took us on a journey that we never dreamed we would go. We laughed, loved and cried more than anyone can imagine. We made friends with many people over our journey and now our journey has come to an end. For those who are facing this journey, know that you are not alone. Reach out for help and make friends with those who are walking in the same shoes. Know that those of us who have been there understand your hurt and your pain. These are our stories regarding our journey with our daddy through his nine year battle with Alzheimers. Our hope is to help those who are now faced with the same journey. There will be days of happiness and sunshine embrace these days and let them sustain you through the darker days and always know that you will never walk alone.

The Long Goodbye Book Excerpt:

"Anguished, beautifully written... The Long Goodbye is an elegiac depiction of drama as old as life." -- The New York Times Book Review From one of America's foremost young literary voices, a transcendent portrait of the unbearable anguish of grief and the enduring power of familial love. What does it mean to mourn today, in a culture that has largely set aside rituals that acknowledge grief? After her mother died of cancer at the age of fifty-five, Meghan O'Rourke found that nothing had prepared her for the intensity of her sorrow. In the first anguished days, she began to create a record of her interior life as a mourner, trying to capture the paradox of grief-its monumental agony and microscopic intimacies-an endeavor that ultimately bloomed into a profound look at how caring for her mother during her illness changed and strengthened their bond. O'Rourke's story is one of a life gone off the rails, of how watching her mother's illness-and separating from her husband-left her fundamentally altered. But it is also one of resilience, as she observes her family persevere even in the face of immeasurable loss. With lyricism and unswerving candor, The Long Goodbye conveys the fleeting moments of joy that make up a life, and the way memory can lead us out of the jagged darkness of loss. Effortlessly blending research and reflection, the personal and the universal, it is not only an exceptional memoir, but a necessary one.

Quarterly Essay 66 The Long Goodbye Book Excerpt:

The Great Barrier Reef is dying. Extreme weather is becoming all too familiar. Yet when it comes to action on climate change, division and paralysis rule the land. In this vivid, urgent essay, Anna Krien explores the psychology and politics of a warming world. She visits the frontlines of Australia’s climate wars – the Reef, the Galilee and Bowen basins, South Australia. She investigates the Adani mine, with its toxic politics and controversial economics. Talking to power workers and scientists, lobbyists and activists, she considers where climate change is taking us, and where effective action is to be found. “This was Turnbull’s moment, and the Liberal Party’s too. Not just the Snowy 2.0, but the whole thing – an ailing and dysfunctional grid, a complex issue, something for the ‘adults’ to take responsibility for. But instead of leadership, Australians got politics as usual. Cheap shots, culture-war baiting, bad and good ideas lobbed like hot potatoes and lost in the trash talk of low-grade politics. After the ten-day policy spree, Turnbull resumed his poker face, continuing with his grim role of negotiating with the vipers in his nest.” Anna Krien, The Long Goodbye
