Kay Redfield Jamison is a professor of psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the author of the national bestsellers An Unquiet Mind and Night Falls Fast. Actor and voice-over artist Renee Raudman has performed on film, television, radio, and stage. A multiple Audie Award nominee, she has garnered several AudioFile Earphones Awards, a Publishers Weekly Listen-Up Award, and numerous starred reviews.
Jamison (psychiatry, Johns Hopkins Univ. Sch. of Medicine) is the preeminent expert on bipolar disorder. While her elegant Night Falls Fast explored her own struggles managing the disease, this book conjures Joan Didion's Year of Magical Thinking with its testaments of love to a beloved husband who died of cancer (Richard Wyatt, former chief of neuropsychiatry, National Inst. of Mental Health). A superb read guaranteed to appeal to those who have survived the loss of a spouse, with insights into differentiating depression from grief.

"Raudman's narration is full of wistfulness as she delivers Jamison's memoir recounting the illness and death of her husband." ---AudioFile
