An extraordinary love story, Wife Just Let Go are the last words Robert Briggs wrote to his wife before he passed away from Alzheimer’s disease. A publisher, literary agent, and author who deeply felt the influence of the Beat era, Robert never stopped writing. Even in his later stages of Alzheimer’s, Robert was able to share insights into what he called “the power of aging,” and his love of poetry, jazz, and Zen. He continued to write, valiantly, of his younger days and of his stint in the army when he and his platoon witnessed an atomic bomb explosion at Frenchman Flat, Nevada, an experience that forever haunted his imagination. What began as a promise to publish his last works evolved into this duo-memoir. His wife Diana, as his long-time partner and primary caregiver, joined him in this telling, as a way to restore for the reader, and for Robert, the parts of the story he was losing. Her meditative commentary became her solace through her own path of pain and grief as she witnessed the daily, wrenching loss of her husband’s memory, and ultimately his death. Poignantly written yet unflinchingly honest, the book navigates not only the waters of grief and loss, but also the other side of Alzheimer’s: gifts that sustain and inspire loved ones left behind.
In his new book on truth and lies in relationships, Jean Richard Franck, MA, shows readers how small lies can lead to big consequences.
Franck’s realism sets his work apart from other relationship books. He acknowledges that in a perfect world, no one would lie about anything. He also acknowledges that we don’t live in a perfect world, and people are going to lie. Instead of condemning anyone for doing so, he teaches readers how to separate the harmless lies from the toxic ones. He helps readers identify whether their partner lies and whether lies should be a deal breaker in a relationship.
Love in the Midst of Lie and Truth will teach readers how to better emotionally read situations and relationships. It is only with a thorough understanding of the psychology behind social situations that they can navigate through them without hurting feelings or ruffling feathers.
Franck ends the book with two hypothetical situations: a painful love and a painless love. He shows the emotional complexity of relationships and how to recognize if you and your partner are “painful or painless” in your affection and respect for each other.
