"From iconic leader Bozoma Saint John, comes a memoir of grief, and one woman's drive to thrive in the face of loss When Bozoma Saint John's husband, Peter Saint John, died of cancer, she made one big decision: to live life with urgency. Saint John was no stranger to adversity, having lost her college boyfriend to suicide, navigated an interracial marriage, grieved a child born prematurely--a process that led to her and Peter's separation--and coparented the daughter she and Peter shared. When Peter knew his cancer was terminal, he gave Bozoma a short list of things to do: cancel the divorce, and fix the wrongs immediately. In THE URGENT LIFE, Bozoma takes readers through the dizzying, numbing days of grief, and the courage which it sparked in her to live life in accordance with her deepest values time and time again. We witness Saint John's journey forward through multiple griefs, as she works through life as a single parent and builds a truly remarkable career. Saint John's story is extraordinary, but her grief is not uncommon, and her courage is sure to touch any reader who has loved, mourned and found a path through loss and grief, as well as anyone who's struggled to live life to its fullest"-- Provided by publisher.
