My Wife Said You May Want
to Marry Me: A Memoir
The widower who became nationally known after his wife wrote days before her death a heart-wrenching column in The New York Times shares his insight about love, loss and living again in his new memoir.
Jason Rosenthal’s book My Wife Said You May Want to Marry Me shares his experience after his wife, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, wrote the column “You May Want To Marry My Husband” which The New York Times published ten days before she died. The essay illuminated her desire for Jason to move forward and find happiness after her death.
In My Wife Said You May Want to Marry Me, Jason describes what came next: his commitment to respect Amy’s wish, even as he struggled with her loss. Surveying his life before, with, and after Amy, Jason ruminates on love, the pain of watching a loved one suffer and what it means to heal.
His new work is guaranteed to be far reaching to all who have suffered with grief, loss and the journey to new life, purpose and relationships through healing.
