“I know now that we never get over great losses; we absorb them, and they carve us into different, often kinder, creatures…We tell the story to get them back, to capture the traces of footfalls through the snow.” — Gail Caldwell, Let’s Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship.
I have 3 copies of Whatever Doesn’t Kill You to give away.
If you’re interested in receiving a copy, please leave a 10-25 word response in the comments to any book you’ve read in 2014. I’ll select 3 lucky winners this Friday, December 12. Worldwide entries are welcome.
