Find the Good: Request a Galley

“A gem of a book. It’s honest and funny, reminding us to live in the moment and to pay attention to those around us. A joy to read.” —Sharon Salzberg, New York Times bestselling author of Real Happiness

Heather Lende has been praised for her storytelling talent and her plainspoken wisdom. She’s been called “part Annie Dillard, part Anne Lamott” (Los Angeles Times), and with this new book, that comparison has never been more apt.

As the obituary writer in tiny Haines, Alaska, Lende knows something about lives well lived. And now, she’s distilled what she’s learned about living a more exhilarating and meaningful life into three words: Find the Good. It’s that easy–and that hard.

With humor and compassion, Lende reminds us that we can see every event as an opportunity to find the good. Drawing on her own experiences and unique skill of uncovering the positive aspects of the lives she chronicles, she shows us how to look at our relationships, our obligations, our priorities, our community, and our world from a fresh perspective. Lende empowers us to make the most of the life we have. As she says, “We are all writing our own obituary every day by how we live. The best news is that there’s still time for additions and revisions before it goes to press.”

A gift to share with friends and family, Find the Good offers a way out of the negativity and cynicism that often overwhelm our daily routines. In stormy times like these, we have to make our own good weather, and Find the Good shows us how.

Heather Lende is the New York Times bestselling author of If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name. She has contributed essays and commentary to NPR, the New York Times, and National Geographic Traveler and is a columnist for the Alaska Dispatch News and an obituary writer for the Chilkat Valley News.
