Both Sides Now is an unflinching memoir of love and loss and hope. Nancy Sharp’s honesty and hard-earned wisdom make this book essential reading for anyone facing adversity–which is all of us.”
—Ann Hood, Author of Comfort, The Red Thread, and The Obituary Writer.

“The Nancy Sharp you will meet in this moving memoir is an exemplar of honesty, courage, and grace. I know of no other book that addresses the pain of loss and the challenge of recovery with the fierce intimacy displayed in Both Sides Now.”
—Daniel Okrent. Author, Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition; former editor, Life magazine.

“I adore this story because it speaks to something so healthy, which is resilience. That takes courage, which can be scary, but it can really contribute to the good life.”
Dr. Oz: The Good Life

“Wrenching yet eloquent and fiercely hopeful”
Kirkus Reviews

“Sharp’s frank revelations about loss and healing—conveyed in bite-size chapters, at times just a sentence long—are both profound and relatable and offer hope to anyone who’s wondered if life will get better.”
