Summary
"Having lost eight friends in ten years, Martha Cooley retreats to a tiny medieval village in Italy with her husband. There...she examines a question both easily evaded and unavoidable: mortality...Linking the essays is Cooley's escalating understanding of another loss on the way, that of her ailing mother back in the States...Part memoir, part loving goodbye to an unconventional parent, Guesswork transforms a year in a pastoral hill town into a fierce examination of life, love, death, and ultimately, release"--Front cover flap
