Judy Goldman presents Together: A Memoir in Paperback

January 26th Judy Goldman

To relieve his back pain, Judy Goldman’s husband had an epidural (a procedure so routine it’s given to women during childbirth).  The minute the needle pushed into his spine, he was paralyzed from the waist down.  That’s the starting point for Together, which looks at the changes we all face – the slow, ordinary changes brought about by the passage of time and the sudden, dramatic ones that catch us by surprise.  Identities shift, roles switch.  How do we adjust?  This is a story about the life we dream of and the life we make.  It’s about what happens to love over time and all at once.
