Positive and genuine, writer Amy Bloom’s husband, Brian, sounds like someone anyone would love to know. Sadly, in 2019 he received an Alzheimer’s diagnosis and called on Bloom’s support as he chose to end his life before the disease could. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Bloom’s memoir, In Love, which moves between anecdotes of the past and the journey to Switzerland for the couple’s final days together. Bloom narrates and speaks of her great love and devastating loss with equal parts emotional warmth and quiet composure. Her voice is capable and clear, her narration is remarkable, and the memoir is a loving tribute.
