Zoe FitzGerald Carter's wrenching memoir about a family coming to terms with the mother's plan, after a long and difficult illness, to commit suicide.
Zoe FitzGerald Carter is a graduate of Columbia Journalism School and has written for numerous publications, including New York magazine, the New York Observer, Premiere, and various national magazines. Her first memoir, Imperfect Endings, won first place in the 2008 Pacific Northwest Writer's Association's literary contest and was a finalist at the San Francisco Writer's Conference. Zoe lives in Northern California with her husband and two daughters. Karen White is a classically trained actress who has been recording and directing audiobooks for more than ten years. An Audie Award finalist and Best Audiobook of the Year 2009 winner for The Hemingses of Monticello by Annette Gordon Reed, she has earned many AudioFile Earphones Awards, including for Too Good to Be True by Erin Arvedlund and Inside of a Dog by Alexandra Horowitz. Of Karen's narration of Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick, Publishers Weekly says, "Karen White delivers a stunning reading, her character interpretations are confident and well-rounded, and she forges a strong bond with the audience."
"I love this book! Zoe Carter has taken what could be a very sad story and turned it into something beautiful and incredibly insightful." ---Kate Lehrer, author of Confessions of a Bigamist
