Sadly, Beverly Jensen passed awayin 2003 before this book was published in 2007. Beverly's husband, Jay Silverman, pursued publishing the work with lots of encouragement from family, friends and colleagues. One of the chapters in this book, "Wake", was published in the "New England Review". Stephen King liked the story so much he put it into the "Best American Short Stories of 2007". The book you see now was published by Penguin with the help and encouragement of many notable writers, journalists and publicists, who loved and appreciated Beverly's excellent work. It really is an honor to recommend this book.
