A memoir of six years in Theroux's life, covering universal topics such as love, loneliness, growing old, spiritual growth, and death.

Perseus Publishing
Essayist Phyllis Theroux has long captivated readers with her pitch-perfect rendering of the inner lives of American women.The Journal Keeper is a memoir of six years in her life. A natural storyteller, Theroux slips her arm companionably into yours, like an old friend going for a stroll. But Theroux’s stride is long, her eye sharp, and she swings easily between subjects that occupy us all: love, loneliness, growing old, financial worries, spiritual growth, and watching her remarkable mother prepare for death. Theroux began to keep a journal when she was in distress. It saved her life by helping her to see circumstances more clearly. With nuggets of wisdom, The Journal Keeper is a rich feast from a writing lifewith a surprising romantic twist. But it was not until Theroux sat down to edit her journals for publication did she realize, in her words, that a hand much larger and more knowing than my own was guiding my life and pen across the page.” She makes a good case for this being true for us all.
