Biography & Memoir • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Amy Lin's husband was running a virtual half-marathon when he dropped dead for no discoverable reason. He was 32 years old. She was left absolutely broken. Lin's performance of her memoir, told in vignettes of meeting and losing Kurtis, is so staggeringly beautiful that it will break your heart. Her grief is so obviously raw and her memories of their life together so full of love that it's astonishing the author was physically and emotionally able to read the work aloud. Kurtis recognized Lin as a writer before she identified herself as such, making her feel seen and loved. Lin teaches us, or reminds us, that sitting with someone in their sadness is far more helpful than a futile attempt to distract someone from their grief.
