What We Are Reading Today: I’ll Be Seeing You by Elizabeth Berg

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Berg tells the moving love story of caring for her parents in their final years in this beautifully written memoir.

I’ll Be Seeing You charts the passage from the anguish of loss to the understanding that even in the most fractious times, love can heal, transform, and lead to graceful — and grateful — acceptance. 

This is a touching story about the author as a caregiver to her aging parents. 

Berg has written “a bittersweet, often painful yet keenly observant accounting of her parents’ last years together. Her father became debilitated by dementia and her mother was his primary caretaker, while they moved from their home into a care facility ... There is much to learn here. It is a brave book,” said a review in goodreads.com. 

“This book is so insightful. Many of us will be both taking care of our children and our parents at the same time and possibly even grandparents. Berg’s thoughts and feelings are written beautifully and leave much to be thought about,” the review added.

Berg presents a very healthy and loving perspective.

What We Are Reading Today: Four Kings

Author: George Kimball

By the late 1970s, boxing had lapsed into a moribund state and interest in it was on the wane. In 1980, however, the sport was resuscitated by a riveting series of bouts involving an improbably dissimilar quartet: Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns and Roberto Duran.
These four boxers brought out the best in each other, producing unprecedented multimillion-dollar gates along the way. Each of the nine bouts between the four men was memorable in its own way and at least two of them — Leonard-Hearns I in 1981 and Hagler-Hearns in 1985 — are commonly included on any list of the greatest fights of all time. The controversial outcome of another — the 1987 Leonard-Hagler fight — remains the subject of heated debates amongst fans to this day.
Leonard, Hagler, Hearns and Duran didn’t set out to save boxing from itself in the post-Ali era, but somehow they managed to do so. In Four Kings, award-winning journalist George Kimball documents the remarkable effect they had on the sport and argues that we will never see their likes again.
