Listen to clips from the audiobooks mentioned in this episode:

In this moving memoir of losing a beloved spouse, the longtime editor of Texas Monthly, newly widowed, returns alone to a city whose enchantment he’s only ever shared with his wife. Paris Without Her is a work of courage and insight—an ode to a partner, to a magnificent city, and to the self we might invent, and reinvent, there.

In Three Dreamers, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lorenzo Carcaterra offers a heartfelt homage to the women who taught him courage, kindness, and the power of storytelling: his mother, his grandmother, and his late wife.

Stranger Care is the moving story of what one woman learned from fostering a newborn—about injustice, about making mistakes, about how to better love and protect people beyond our immediate kin.
