Squeezing the magnitude of his final days with her into 140-character updates, Simon's ... meditations spread virally. Over the course of a few days, Simon chronicled his mother's death and reminisced about her life, revealing her humor and strength, and celebrating familial love ... Spending their last days together in a hospital ICU, mother and son reflect on their lifetime's worth of memories, recounting stories laced with humor and exemplifying resilience"-- Provided by publisher.

I wish I had been reading this when my mother-in-law was in her final illness. It is a lovely book.

A childhood that was somewhat bohemian resulted in a very close and loving mother/son relationship. The writer thrived and was loved by an array of characters that enriched his life. In return he loved them, and especially his mother. This is a beautiful tribute to his beautiful mother.

A loving memoir by a loving son about his mother. Very touching and funny at the same time.

A beautiful memoir of a mother and son and their very strong loving relationship. The author stayed in the ICU, and then in palliative care, with his mother in the days before she died, and as someone who did the same with my mother, I felt his book was loving, generous and a tribute to the beauty of both life and death.
