The Stuff of Life: A Daughter's Memoir

The Stuff of Life: A Daughter's Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Karen Karbo's father, a charming, taciturn Clint Eastwood type who lives in a triple-wide in the Nevada desert, is diagnosed with lung cancer, his only daughter rises to the challenge of caring for him. Neither of them is exactly cut out for the job. As Dick Karbo's disease progresses, Karen finds herself sometimes the responsible adult, sometimes a stubborn teenager all over again. But in the end, what father and daughter discover more than anything is the love and the toughness that makes them alike.

Synopsis:

A fascinating portrait of a father-daughter relationship explains how the author, a freelance writer and reluctant caregiver, set out to take care of her father, a retired industrial designer and card-caring member of the NRA, after he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Karen Karbo is the author of three novels and the nonfiction book Generation Ex: Tales from the Second Wives Club. Her writing has appeared in Vogue, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, the New Republic, and the New York Times, among other publications. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
