The Oprah bookclub has just published the list of her reccos for best memoirs.

And a Kiss B4U Go is the cover pick! (alongside other amazing authors like RIchard Russo and Jeannette Winterson…)

Wow! Happy New Year!

P.S. A favor:  There’s a really nice review of the book and I’m sure it would be helpful if people who come up on it knew others had read it too, so please, feel free to comment on it too and share your experience of the book. The more the merrier!

  1. Congrats Danny!! I agree with Michael!! Your book was on my Xmas wish list and my dear hubby bought it for me…I love it so far….can soooo tell it’s from your heart…the deepest parts. Thank you for sharing it with the world!!


  2. Wow, Danny, that is fabulous! How exciting!

    Your sales are going to go through the roof. It is well deserved. I love my copy and have recommended it to several people. We’ll be reading it for my online book club (no where in the same universe as Oprah’s Book Club).



  3. Happy New Year, Danny! This honor just shows that you speak to a deep need in all of us to quietly look upon what happens in our lives, be it gains or th deep loss of a loved one. Our society is way too quick to urge us to bury our griefs and “get on with it” rather than honoring our loss and respecting its place in our lives. Thank you for the lessons you have allowed us to learn with you.


  4. OMG I can’t imagine what that must feel like – well done and very rightly deserved. I want to say lots more and can’t and all I am doing is commenting on a blog!! What you managed to say, how you said it, what you said it about and when you said it make it so life changingly incredible. well done x x


  5. Danny, this news sent me racing to the dictionary to find words that describe your gift to all of us and they just simply don’t seem to be there….I am over the top happy for you!!!! As you know you changed my life and there is not a day that I do not share your books with everyone/anyone! Jen gave me the watercolors you recommended and I am a painting fool. Most resemble elementary art work but I feel there is a “Monet” in there somewhere! And now OPRAH! You make my heart sing and my soul full of hope. Happy New Year !!


  6. Hi, Danny–Your “About” comments are closed, so I’ll sneak in on this post to say I think your drawings are wonderful. A comment on my blog led me to this one, and we unfortunately share the experience of being Princeton alums who write and blog about the grossly untimely deaths of our beloved spouses (we also both have a sixteen-year-old). I think art is a great path to healing, whether it’s drawing, quilting, fiction or haiku. I look forward to getting a copy of your book..


  7. Danny, I have just entered “A Kiss Before You Go” into the Powell Books (Portland, Oregon) Puddle Awards contest. If others are interested they can go to the site Powell’s.com Specials and vote for your book as the best book they read in 2012. You might want to make this a separate blog post! When you vote you also have an option to leave a comment about the book there to interest more readers! I did!
