I talked to Jodee Prouse recently about her deeply intimate book, The Sun Is Gone. Everyone in the world should read this book. It’s a story of family and the consequences of addiction for all it’s members. It is raw and honest and brave, but full of compassion and empathy. Jodee and I spoke the day after she had to put her beloved dog to sleep, so I’m deeply grateful to her for keeping our appointment. Coincidentally, my own dog decided to get noisy during our chat, which was picked up on the microphone. I sent it to my IT expert guy, and he couldn’t remove it……so I’m taking that to mean it should be left in there……so sorry about the barks. But hey, that’s what happens when you work from a home full of life and lively beings.
