Stern's latest memoir movingly chronicles his sister Ruth's death from cancer. Stern's ability to include so much else in the short book-from anecdotes about his friends to ruminations on the aborted Russian coup-without detracting too much from its tragic core says a great deal about his strength as a writer. In his best fiction, Stern can conjure up a complex characterization in a few paragraphs.

The relationship between Richard Stern and his sister, Ruth Leviton, had not been close for many years. The heart of the book, however, is the relationship of brother and sister. He was a famous writer and professor while she was a housewife. When Stern learns of her illness, however, he is forced to reassess that relationship. Brother and sister meet and reminisce about their childhood and parents. Ruth dies of cancer and Stern grieves not only for her painful death but also for the love for his sister that he had not fully expressed. His professional life is successful and fulfilling and he has a loving wife and children who admire and respect him.
