Tuotekuvaus

The second installment in Ann Hood's Gracie Belle imprint challenges the traditional solemnity that characterizes nonfiction books of grief, loss, and sorrow.

"Few readers will fail to be gripped by this tragically common story about death and what comes after for those left behind...A haunting and thought-provoking consideration of death and 'how utterly it rips apart our lives.'
--Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

Porter has written a memoir about the year after [Claire] died, a year he spent grieving and grappling with how to live and how to remember.
--Talk of Iowa

An inherently absorbing, thoughtful and thought-provoking read, Planet Claire: Suite for Cello and Sad-Eyed Lovers is laced with unexpectedly effective blend of humor and heartbreak, love and loss, that is as intimately personal as it is recognizably universal.
--Midwest Book Review

Through his turmoil and grief, readers are plunged into 274 pages of Porter's past and present, and through space as he navigates what he calls 'Planet Claire.' The piece beautifully describes what his life with her was like and what it will be like with her not there.
--Daily Iowan

In elegiac prose, the bereft Porter grieves by reminiscing about the life [he and Claire] shared together...Porter's memoir is a wistful, often painful, but beautifully written account of the trauma of grief, and also embodies the way writing provides solace from the bleak absurdities of life.
--Booklist

[A] warmly rich, wholly enveloping and vividly ambient memoir.
--Exclusive Magazine

A searing account of love lost.
--MuggleNet

Jeff Porter has given us an incredibly warm, rich, vivid memoir, a love letter to his deceased wife and an autobiography of love attained and lost. When a person dies a world passes away, yet Porter has created a cabinet of wonders out of a thousand bits of the world that vanished when his wife died. The sentences are sharp and surprising, perfectly formed, by turns painful, funny, haunting, and inevitably right.
--Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone

Jeff Porter indelibly conjures his lost, beloved Claire in a 'spiral galaxy' of memory, while offering the story of a delicious marriage in prose that is elegiac but also gorgeous, funny, and endearingly modest.
--Honor Moore, author of The Bishop's Daughter

Planet Claire is the story of the untimely death of the autho
