Summary, etc.: When Eleanor Goode meets Gerald Wildman, she's a senior at Wellesley who's won all the writing prizes. He's just published his first novel, Dirty Blond, and is well on his way to becoming one of the literary lions of his day. Gerald seduces Ellie, spinning her a fantasy of working with him: two writers, side by side. How could she have known that, in their years together, it would be one typewriter, not two; his words, not hers? How she would become the fetcher of coffee, the holder of trinkets fans would press into his hands after readings, the keeper of his legacy. A Memoir of Grief (Continued) begins with Gerald's death. Ellie, who hasn't written more than a grocery list in 53 years of marriage, had no intention of writing a memoir. It's not until she realizes how broke he left her that she decides to write a whitewashed account of her life with a great man of letters. Widow's Walk spends over a year on the New York Times best-seller list. Critics hail Ellie's talent, the revelatory way she writes about grief, and how to live through it. Ellie enjoys the attention, but happily thinks that now that she can pay off her bills, that'll be the end of her literary career - until her editor starts asking about her next book. Luckily, Gerald wasn't the only disappointing man in her life....
