Carole Weaver, author
Pies to Die For is a how-to against the bad stuff of living with metastatic cancer or other lethal diagnoses-the monsters that attack your frame of mind, so you can't enjoy the time you have left. It's also a romp through art appraising; specifically, through the author's husband and his clients who have lost art through death, debt, divorce, and disaster. These stories offer hints about how to cope with something beautiful being gone, or they entertain you with the strangeness of human nature-even without stage four anything. This book is meant to give you tools for your journey, however long or short, so that you live vibrantly, gratefully, and with gusto till the end.
