“My stroke did not just change my life. It saved my life.”

So begins Between Heaven and Hell: The Story of My Stroke, the [powerful memoir

By celebrated historian, journalist, and bestselling author David Talbot. Stricken with

a debilitating stroke at the age of sixty-six, he was left partially paralyzed—struggling

to speak, to swallow, to stand —and required constant monitoring. And yet, despite

his startling new condition, he didn’t consider himself a man whose life was really

diminished. He was instead a man whose life was profoundly revived.

 

For the first time, Talbot invites readers along on his intimate journey through the

life-changing year following his stroke. From that fateful night in November, 2017,

through the harrowing journey from the ER to the stroke center, and ultimately along

his road to recovery, Talbot reveals the painstaking, yet strangely euphoric process

of restarting one’s life.  And in examining his frenetic past – from the frenzied early

days as founder of the online media pioneer Salon, through his successful publishing

career and to his wild journey through Hollywood – he offers readers an uncensored

look at a life both shattered and renewed. 

 

Told with Talbot’s trademark candor and humor, Between Heaven and Hell is a 

Powerful reminder of how a major health crisis can positively alter one’s identity

And shift one’s perspective on life itself.
