Novelist Joyce Maynard shares an account of her relationship with her late husband, Jim Barranger, in her memoir, The Best of Us (Bloomsbury).
"In this touching memoir, Maynard (To Die For; At Home in the World) chronicles her second marriage. She beautifully renders the joy of falling in love later in life and the pain of watching her husband die of pancreatic cancer. Maynard's heartfelt story will resonate with those who have lost loved ones." - Publishers Weekly.
