Publisher's Summary

Kate Spencer lost her mom to cancer when she was 27. In The Dead Moms Club, she walks listeners through her experience of stumbling through grief and loss and helps them to get through it, too. This isn't a weepy, sentimental story but rather a frank, up-front look at what it means to go through gruesome grief and come out on the other side.
An empathetic listen, The Dead Moms Club covers how losing her mother changed nearly everything in her life: Both men and women listeners who have lost parents or experienced grief of this magnitude will be comforted and consoled. Spencer even concludes each chapter with a cheeky but useful tip for listeners (like the "It's None of Your Business Card" to copy and hand out to nosy strangers asking about your passed loved one).

Membership in The Dead Mom's Club

Two months plus two days ago I became a member of this club...also due to pancreatic cancer. A very supportive friend found this book for me. She said, "She's a comic. I think her style and perspective might work for you, esp as an initial foray. I hope so". She couldn't have been more right. I got the book in audio, I love it. It hit every emotion and thought I am experiencing. I thought this would help me get through the grief faster, but what I found most valuable is it has validated some of the, what I thought were, inappropriate or unusual thoughts and reactions I'd had. Thank you, and your mom, for this poignant yet comforting memoir, "yo go girl"!

Wonderfully funny and relatable

My mom died 15 years ago, but my lifelong friend's mom died just recently. I bought us both this book so we could read it together. And I'm so glad I did! My mom didn't die from cancer, and yet everything Kate wrote felt so real and true for me too. I loved the snarky endings to each chapter, with funny tips for the grieving that I still feel are true and usable. I loved Kate's narration and little things like "So if you're listening" (rather than reading) really make me enjoy an audiobook more. Kate is open and honest and feels like your best friend talking you through "the mother of all losses." This isn't an ordinary grief book, this is a necessary read for all members of the Dead Moms Club. You will laugh out loud, and you'll definitely shed a tear or two or more, like me, while listening.
