Lesléa Newman watched her mother’s body break down from cancer and COPD while her mind remained intact; and then watched her father’s mind break down from a series of cerebral “episodes" while his body remained intact. She cared for both her parents in turn as they transitioned from this world to the next, and while she learned many things about illness and death, she also learned a great deal about life. Her pair of memoirs-in-verse,I Carry My Mother and I Wish My Father chronicle this journey full of pain and sorrow as well as joy and most of all love.
