What We Have, a memoir by Amy Boesky, is a look into the life of a young woman who grew up with the threat of cancer hanging over her head
What We Have, a memoir by Amy Boesky, is a look into the life of a young woman who grew up with the threat of cancer hanging over her head. Grandmothers, aunts, and great-aunts, all of whom died in their 40's from ovarian cancer, created a shadow of fear that followed her every step. She knew at 35 she would have her ovaries removed, just as her mother did.
Beautifully written with a mix of heartbreak and joy, What We Have by Amy Boesky is a deeply moving memoir of family dynamics. Amy Boesky tells her story as a daughter, a wife, a sister, a mother and of course as herself, a type A minus personality, whose life has been structured with special focus on time, considering the women in her family rarely live past the age of fifty.
At thirty-two, Amy Boesky thought she had it all figured out: a wonderful new man in her life, a great job, and the (nearly) perfect home
In a true story as compelling as the best in women's fiction, written with the sagacity of Joan Didion and the elegance of Amy Bloom, Amy Boesky's journey celebrates the promise of a full life, even in the face of uncertainty. At thirty-two, Amy Boesky thought she had it all figured out: a wonderful new man in her life, a great job, and the (nearly) perfect home. For once, she was almost able to shake the terrible fear that had gripped her for as long as she could remember.
