Survival Lessons by Alice Hoffman

Novelist Alice Hoffman (Here on Earth) was diagnosed with cancer at the same time her mother was battling the disease, her sister-in-law had recently passed away from it, and her sons were still young. Survival Lessons is the result of those trying years, and as Ms. Hoffman puts it, she wrote the book “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.” This charmingly formatted book is graciously distilled, with simple and intimate pieces of advice that Hoffman garnered in her journey. Often wry and humorous, Hoffman’s gift as a storyteller adds a little oomph to each lesson, and the whole is a wonderful guide for anyone struggling with trauma, grief, or loss.
