Touching, informative, sometimes funny, sometimes harrowing,
I couldn't put it down Anne Lamott, NY Times bestselling author
My stroke did not just change my life. It saved my life.
So begins Between Heaven and Hell: The Story of My Stroke, the powerful memoir
By celebrated historian, journalist, and bestselling author David Talbot. Stricken with
a debilitating stroke at the age of sixty-six, he was left partially paralyzed, struggling
to speak, to swallow, to stand and required constant monitoring. And yet, despite
his startling new condition, he didn't consider himself a man whose life was really
diminished. He was instead a man whose life was profoundly revived.
For the first time, Talbot invites readers along on his intimate journey through the
life-changing year following his stroke. From that fateful night in November, 2017,
through the harrowing journey from the ER to the stroke center, and ultimately along
his road to recovery, Talbot reveals the painstaking, yet strangely euphoric process
of restarting ones life. And in examining his frenetic past from the frenzied early
days as founder of the online media pioneer Salon, through his successful publishing
career and to his wild journey through Hollywood he offers readers an uncensored
look at a life both shattered and renewed.
Told with Talbots trademark candor and humor, Between Heaven and Hell is a
powerful reminder of how a major health crisis can positively alter ones identity
and shift ones perspective on life itself.
