Just Listen for the Thud, by Maggie McCann Pike

Posted on December 23, 2015 | in NEW BOOKS | by

ThudJust Listen for the Thud: Humorous and Intimate Stories from Caregivers, is a collection of narratives about family members who learned to include humor as they cared for their loved ones suffering serious illness. While the how-to of caregiving is woven into the caregivers’ stories, it is just the backdrop for the heart of the book, namely a compelling testimony to the depth of love, the endurance of commitment, the force of warm human connection—and, most importantly, the groundbreaking discovery that took them all by surprise: As family caregivers, they have the power to heal the spirit through laughter. In a tone of light-heartedness, hope, and encouragement, this book tells the caregivers’ stories and, through short vignettes, answers the question they hear so often: “How do you do it?” Maggie’s unpublished partial manuscript received the San Diego State University Conference Choice Award in 2015. Now published, the book is available on Amazon, at Tattered Cover, and at the author’s website, maggiemccannpike.com. ISBN 978-0-9964611-2-2
