Although I didn’t give this one five stars because at times it was a little dragging, this one ALMOST made me cry. Almost. Not quite, but it was a close one. The story of a man (and former publishing editor) who bonds with his dying mother over books is something that brought back memories of my grandfather who himself died of cancer last year – although we bonded over a shared love of The Price is Right instead of books. If you liked THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING (mentioned often in THE END OF YOUR LIFE BOOK CLUB, actually), this is a book you’ll need to read ASAP.
