"In November of 2016, Liz Levine's younger sister, Tamara, reached a breaking point after years of living with mental illness. In the dark hours before dawn, she sent a final message to her family and committed suicide. In Nobody Every Talks About Anything But the End, Liz weaves the story of what happened to Tamara with another significant death--that of Liz's childhood love, Judson, to cancer. This account of life and loss--inventively told in the form of the alphabet--is haunting and bittersweet, heartbreaking yet often hilarious. With appealing honesty, Liz writes about her relationship with Judson, Tamara's increasingly bizarre outbursts, the conflicts that arise in a family of challenging personalities and multiple religions, and how death casts a long shadow. In doing so, she exposes the raw and uncomfortable truths about grief and mourning that we often shy away from--and almost never share with others. And she reveals how, in the midst of death, life--with all its messy complications--must also be celebrated."--Provided by publisher.
