The Widower’s Notebook

A Memoir

Coming from Penguin Books July 10, 2018

“Deeply moving . . . beautifully written . . . It is such an achievement, like running uphill against a strong wind.” —Joyce Carol Oates

Written with unexpected humor and great warmth, The Widower’s Notebook, is a portrait of a marriage, an account of the complexities of finding oneself single again after losing your spouse, and a story of enduring love.

Clearly, the most personal book I have ever written, a chronicle of my dear wife, Joy’s, sudden death, and the aftermath."--Jonathan Santlofer
