A Lucky Life Interrupted: A Memoir of Hope Book Information:

S BESTSELLER A powerful memoir of a dramatic year spent battling cancer and reflecting on a long, happy, and lucky lifefrom the bestselling author of The Greatest Generation, whose iconic career in journalism has spanned more than fifty yearsTom Brokaw has led a fortunate life, with a strong marriage and family, many friends, and a brilliant journalism career culminating in his twenty-two years as anchor of the NBC Nightly News and as bestselling author. But in the summer of 2013, when back pain led him to the doctors at the Mayo Clinic, his run of good luck was interrupted. He received shocking news: He had multiple myeloma, a treatable but incurable blood cancer. Friends had always referred to Brokaws lucky star, but as he writes in this inspiring memoir, Turns out that star has a dimmer switch. Brokaw takes us through all the seasons and stages of this surprising year, the emotions, discoveries, setbacks, and strugglestimes of denial, acceptance, turning points, and courage. After his diagnosis, Brokaw began to keep a journal, approaching this new stage of his life in a familiar role: as a journalist, determined to learn as much as he could about his condition, to report the story, and help others facing similar battles. That journal became the basis of this wonderfully written memoir, the story of a man coming to terms with his own mortality, contemplating what means the most to him now, and reflecting on what has meant the most to him throughout his life. Brokaw also pauses to look back on some of the important moments in his career: memories of Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the morning of September 11, 2001, in New York City, and more. Through it all, Brokaw writes in the warm, intimate, natural voice of one of Americas most beloved journalists, giving us Brokaw on Brokaw, and bringing us with him as he navigates pain, procedures, drug regimens, and physical rehabilitation. Brokaw also writes about the importance of patients taking an active role in their own treatment, and of the vital role of caretakers and coordinated care. Generous, informative, and deeply human, A Lucky Life Interrupted offers a message of understanding and empowerment, resolve and reality, hope for the future and gratitude for a well-lived life.Praise for A Lucky Life Interrupted Its impossible not to be inspired by Brokaws story, and his willingness to share it.Los Angeles TimesA powerful memoir of battling cancer and facing mortality . . .
