Survival Lessons provides a road map of how to reclaim your life from this day forward, with ways to re-envision everything — from relationships with friends and family to the way you see yourself. From hosting dinner parties to adopting dogs, to whether to take that trip you’ve been thinking about, Alice Hoffman provides wise, gentle and wry counsel. As she says, “In many ways I wrote Survival Lessons to remind myself of the beauty of life, something that’s all too easy to overlook during the crisis of illness or loss. I forgot that our lives are made up of equal parts of sorrow and joy, and that it is impossible to have one without the other… I wrote to remind myself that despite everything that was happening to me, there were still choices I could make.” Candid and tender, Survival Lessons teaches all of us how to choose what matters most.
