One phone call. That's all it took to change Stephanie Wittels Wachs's life forever. Her younger brother Harris, a star in the comedy world know for his work on shows like Parks and Recreation, had died of a heroin overdose. How do you make sense of such a tragic end to a life of so much hilarious brilliance. In beautiful, unsentimental, and surprisingly funny prose, Stephanie alternates between her brother's struggle with addiction, which she learned about three days before her wedding, and the first year after his death, in all its emotional devastation. Even in all its emotional devastation, this exploration of the love between siblings will make you laugh, cry...and wonder if that possum on the fence is really your brother's spirit animal.
