What comes next and how to like it : a memoir by Abigail Thomas( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the bestselling author of A Three Dog Life, which "shines with honest intelligence" (Elizabeth Gilbert): a fresh, exhilarating, superbly written memoir about aging, family, creativity, tragedy, friendship, and the richness of life. What comes next? What comes after the devastating loss of Abigail's husband, a process both sudden and slow? What form does her lifelong platonic friendship take after a certain line is crossed? How to cope with her daughter?s diagnosed illness? Or the death of her beloved dog? Is life worth living without three cocktails before dinner? How do you paint the ocean on a sheet of glass? And how to like it? How to accept, appreciate, enjoy? Who are our most trusted, valuable companions and what will we do for them? Instead of painting an ocean, paint a forest, turn it over, scrape the surface, and presto: there is the ocean. When you?ve given up, when you least expect it, there it is. What Comes Next and How to Like It is an extraordinarily moving memoir about many things, but at the center is a steadfast friendship between Abigail Thomas and a man she met thirty-five years ago. Through marriages, child-raising, the vicissitudes and tragedies of life, it is this deep, rich bond that has sustained her. Readers who loved "the perfectly honed observations of a clear-eyed and witty writer" (Newsweek) in Thomas?s "spare, astonishing" (Entertainment Weekly) memoir, A Three Dog Life, will relish this beautiful examination of her life today?often solitary, but rich and engaging, with children, grandchildren, dogs, a few suitors, and her longtime best friend
