Reading is one of those things that saves me.
Roz Chast's book, Can't we Talk About Something More Pleasant, was recommended by one of our forum members today. I absolutely love this book, and being in comic format it is an easy read for anyone. The characters in the book, parents and only daughter, are far from perfect! Talk about limitations! You will feel so much better about our human failings.
My other two favorites are as follows:
Bettyville by George Hodgman: Middle aged New York Editor returns to small town Missouri to care for his Alzheimer's stricken Mom, Betty. 2015
Death in Slow Motion, My Mother's Descent into Alzheimer's by Eleanor Cooney. California Author and her Husband attempt to care for her stricken Mom, herself a famous author. 2003.
Both book above have pathos, but more than that they have humor, beauty, joy, dedication, human failings, redemption.
I think I couldn't make it without the joy of books. Tell me your favorites on this subject. I especially love memoirs.
