Reviews

"A strong and honest book." -- Lewis Lapham, Editor of Harper's Magazine

"Well-written [and] harrowing." -- Publishers Weekly

"Cooney tells it all with a fine and rare mix of black humor and bleak honesty." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Poignant...terrific.... Consider it a must-read." -- Booklist

"Novelist Cooney has woven keen insights, beloved memories and painful despair into a new memoir." -- BookPage

"Cooney creates that eye-of-the-hurricane feeling, of life destroyed and made meaningless by loss, that this topic deserves." -- Book Magazine

"Heartfelt and exquisitely narrated...Immensely moving and terrifyingly funny.... Vibrant and compelling.... -- San Francisco Chronicle

"Death In Slow Motion is a brutally honest, yet remarkably funny and deeply wise book. -- Hartford Courant

"Cooney chronicles her mother's gradual, grinding dissolution...in wry, learned prose." -- Time magazine

"Cooney's memoir... is too fierce and unsparing, too honest and outraged, to be read complacently." -- Chicago Tribune Book Review
