New Indie Book Release: Please Talk about Me When I'm Gone (Sean Murphy)

New Indie Book Release:
Please Talk about Me When I'm Gone - Sean Murphy
A Memoir for My Mother - (298 pages - January 2014)

"Please Talk about Me When I'm Gone, which pulled me in from the first page and never let go, is a mosaic love letter from a son to his lost mother, so everyone in the bereavement club should read it. But this memoir is also a thoughtful, compassionate meditation on being alive. I nodded in recognition, dog-eared pages containing lines I loved, felt my eyes well with tears. In the end you should read it for the reason anyone reads good writing: to feel less alone" - Jenna Blum (NYT Bestseller Author)

Question: How do you get over it?

Answer: You don't. You don't want to. It makes you who you are.

Sean Murphy lost his mother days after her fifty-ninth birthday, following a five-year battle with cancer.

In this eloquent memoir, he explores his family history through the context of grief, compassion, faith, and the cultivation of an artistic sensibility.

Unfolding in a range of voices, brutal and tender in its portrayal of terminal illness, Please Talk about Me When I'm Gone is an unyielding love story, in which devotion and memory are capable of transcending death.
