Midstream

Front Cover
Penguin Books, Feb 1, 1991 - Biography & Autobiography - 309 pages
In her late thirties, Le Anne Schreiber left her position as Deputy Editor of the New York Times Book Review for a new and vastly different life in rural upstate New York. She wanted peace, the time to write and fish, and a chance to build into her life a different pace, different values. And then she learned that her mother had pancreatic cancer. This brilliant memoir bears witness, unflinchingly, to the wrenching details of her mother's illness and death and her own new beginnings. She brings to her observations of nature and her mother's death, precision, wonder, tenderness, speculation, and occasional outrage. Midstream is a compelling autobiography - deeply felt and unforgettable. (51/2 X 81/4, 320 pages, b&w photos)
