About the Author

Sue William Silverman is a memoirist, poet, and teacher of writing at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She has published several books, including Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You; Love Sick: One Woman's Journey through Sexual Addiction; The Pat Boone Fan Club: My Life as a White Anglo-Saxon Jew (Nebraska, 2014); and Fearless Confessions: A Writer's Guide to Memoir.


"Because of the distinctive subject matter and Silverman's vast writing talents, How to Survive Death and Other Inconveniences will appeal to new and experienced readers alike; notably: it will also draw teachers of creative writing, who will cherish it for the many essays that can be taught as models of braided and segmented forms."--Jody Keisner, Hippocampus Magazine--Jody Keisner "Hippocampus Magazine" (2/5/2020 12:00:00 AM)
"A joyously unconventional memoir written at least in part as a hedge against mortality. It will shake loose memories, invite you to ponder, and, maybe best of all, make you laugh. This is a marvelously written, imaginative, and seriously funny book."--Abigail Thomas, New York Times best-selling author of What Comes Next and How to Like It--Abigail Thomas "Hippocampus Magazine" (9/20/2019 12:00:00 AM)
"With true originality and wit, Silverman takes readers on a wild ride through time, memory, pleasure, and trauma. What remains is a deeply human portrait of one woman's resilience and the power of her spirit. I couldn't put it down."--Christina Haag, New York Times best-selling author of Come to the Edge: A Love Story--Christina Haag "Hippocampus Magazine" (9/20/2019 12:00:00 AM)
