"Danny Gregory has created an honest--and literal--portrait of grief, charting the life and death of his wife Patti in watercolors and words.... Gregory's struggles after her death are so true that you can't help relate.... Equally compelling is his progress towards rebuilding his life, the hardest and most mysterious part of a journey like this. How can someone recover? 'The daily Patti has been replaced by the universal Patti, ' he writes. 'I think of all the ways I loved her, at all the different parts of our lives.' " -- Oprah.com
"Personal, original, and vibrant." -- Steven Heller, TheAtlantic.com
"Gregory's thoughtful writing is accompanied by his stunning watercolor paintings, which are so rich and wild they viscerally convey the wide swings of emotion he and his family endured. But the book is not depressing-or at least no more depressing than life is. It's both a celebration of the woman Gregory loved and a clear-eyed look at the work it took to clean up the messes she left behind." - Slate.com

It's beautifully written and wonderfully Illustrated with vibrant sketches in Danny Gregory's inimitable style. I guarantee you won't read a better book about love and loss this year.
Not only do you follow Danny through his own story but it makes you reflect on life, on people and on what is important. This book makes you think and feel and despite the sad subject matter it is a truly positive story that makes you understand the wonder of life through Danny's account of his inspirational wife.
A beautiful book - manages to touch very deep subjects in a down to earth manner without being overly sentimental. Through Danny's story telling you feel and learn about love and life; his, but more importantly yours.

I read the book with a heavy heart. You can feel his emotions through his handwritten words and the beautiful watercolour sketches. There are his personal thoughts, anxiety and turmoils. It's an intimate look at how his life has changed.
The heaviness also comes from having read his earlier book Everyday Matters that's about life after his wife's subway accident. That was published in 2003.
This is a beautiful and moving memoir. It takes tremendous courage to write about loss, especially when you have to relive it.
