Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Other Four-Letter Words

Michael Ausiello

$16.99 $15.63

The hero in this case, is Kit Cowan, who is diagnosed with cancer and dies eleven months later. I would include Michael Ausiello as a hero in this story as well. Michael recounts the post-diagnosis months and revisits their 13 year relationship with an honesty and tenderness few are willing to share. The challenges of those last months were met with courage; the humor that had been ever-present in their relationship carried them to the end and I would imagine continues to be an infinite thread between them. ~ Barb
