The Price of Admission: Embracing a Life of Grief and Joy

Liz Petrone (Author)


On the surface Liz Petrone looks as if she has it all: a family, a budding writing career, a successful marriage. But, like so many women, she is desperately lonely. She's also dealing with the life and death of her alcoholic mother and the ghosts of her own suicidal past.

The Price of Admission takes us on a journey with Liz from loss into renewed life. Raw, unflinchingly honest, and surprisingly funny, Liz writes from a universally understood place of struggle, whether that is the deep darkness of grief or the hazy, yet joyful, dimness of demanding everyday lives spent caring for ourselves and our families.

Through a combination of personal narrative and common truths, Liz provides a timeless reminder to world-weary readers that, just as birth follows death, light does indeed follow darkness; and that, often, it is because of our pain--and not despite it--that we grow, survive, and--yes--thrive.

About the Author

Liz Petrone is a true believer in the healing power of storytelling. A suicide survivor and a recovering anorexic, she found unprecedented support and community in telling intimate stories that speak to the lessons learned in survival and recovery. She's built that community into a safe space for her readers to gather and speak openly and honestly about their own struggles. Today, she's an author, blogger, speaker, and survivor. She shares her stories on, and lives in a creaky old house in Syracuse, New York, with her ever-patient husband, their four children, and an excitable dog named Beau.
