Widowing is not only an exquisite exploration of loss, it is also the biography of a marriage from 1965 to 2015 illustrated in the contrasts of the people within it---  religious vs. not, right brain vs. left, gone vs. here.  Shown in the differences in children wanted (1 and 8), the things they could bring themselves to fight about, and the moments remembered but never photographed.  The title is only the setting-- a verb to work through --not a revelation of the ending.

Throwback Books is an independent publisher of hand-crafted chapbooks. We believe the act of turning the page is no longer a required movement in reading--- so we strive to make that action something tangibly enjoyed in each work.
