For­get Prayers, Bring Cake: A Sin­gle Wom­an’s Guide to Griev­ing is my labor of love – an account of lov­ing New Orleans, los­ing my father, and find­ing my way through my grief alone. Part mem­oir, part self-help guide, this is the book I wished I had as I entered the unchart­ed ter­ri­to­ry of parental loss and dis­ori­ent­ing grief.

For­get Prayers, Bring Cake sets out to make the tools I so need­ed avail­able to those expe­ri­enc­ing the inevitabil­i­ty of grief, includ­ing guid­ance on how to ask for help, sex and dat­ing while griev­ing, what to expect when expect­ing to grieve, PTSD, inher­it­ed trau­ma and all, griev­ing rit­u­als from Sec­ond Lines to kad­dish, and so much more.
