Praise

“This is a book filled with heart. A courageous book. A necessary book. Greenfield’s story is a testament to love, to family, and to survival.”
—ALISON SMITH, author of Name All the Animals
 
“With language poetic and spare, Beth Greenfield mines the tragedies of her life with a humble grace. I kept thinking Mary Karr was channeling Hemingway while reading Ten Minutes from Home, and yet Greenfield’s hard-earned voice is all her own—witty, courageous, close-to-the-bone.”
—KEVIN SESSUMS, author of Mississippi Sissy
 
“In Ten Minutes from Home, Beth Greenfield beautifully captures the lonely, complex territory of grief while staying true to the perspective of a young girl. This memoir of a family shattered by loss is also a story of resilience and the power of language.”
—ELIZABETH GRAVER, author of The Honey Thief
 
“With acute, loving attention, Beth Greenfield shows us how the living, transformed by grief, stagger back toward a renewed life.”
—MARK DOTY, author of Dog Years
 
“A stunning achievement. . . . This memoir, so astute, clear-eyed, and deeply affecting, is as brave as it is beautiful.”
—RICHARD MCCANN, author of Mother of Sorrows
