Summary

"Known for the honesty and wit that made her memoir First Comes Love so riveting, Winik taps into the rich territory of her own life yet again to deliver a lyrical journey that ultimately raises the spirits." "The Glen Rock Book of the Dead presents snapshot portraits of fifty-one people who have touched Marion Winik's life. There's the Driving Instructor and the Bad Influence, the Mah Jongg Player and the Ex-Con, the Queen of New Jersey and a gallery of other characters, from her son's second-grade teacher to Keith Haring. Winik ties these portraits together with observations that strike chords of both loss and joy - forming not only an autobiography, but a story of our time."--BOOK JACKET.
