內容簡介



★紐約時報暢銷書 
★亞馬遜網路書店當月與年度好書 
★OPRAH.COM 傳記類選書 

生命剩餘的時間,高速奔馳在公路上, 
這個世界既殘酷又美麗, 
呼吸、繼續呼吸…… 
就算只有一瞬間,也意義非凡! 

一段放手的歷程、生與死的探索,讓自己接受生命當下, 
在所剩不多的時間裡,擁抱每一日的荒謬與美好。 

★故事起始於一個頑強小區塊,蔓延成失控的病魔。但作者走到人生終曲時,我忘卻了這一個癌塊,心裡盡灌滿了作者與家人朋友之間豐潤綿密的愛。面對已知的死亡,誰能從容?面對未知的每日存活,又何嘗不是?但讀完此書,我知道世間唯一的篤定是:真摯的陪伴、付出與愛。因病魔終將隨生命消失,但愛卻恆久存在。──彭菊仙│親子作家 

當命運來到你面前,你是否還有其他選擇? 
在人生最後的日子裡,是什麼讓生命充滿意義…… 

死亡不是世界末日。人生有太多事比死亡可怕(比如說忌妒、嚴重便祕、沒有幽默感……還有丈夫為你清理引流管時痛苦的表情),也有些事比你想像的更重要(比如說把握時間)。妮娜.瑞格斯,文學家愛默生的後裔,書寫她在病痛中如何維持正常生活,以溫和堅定的口吻提出與世人相反的觀點:癌症不是我們「拚輸贏」的對象,她的目標是「不對結果耿耿於懷」——不管是化療結果、教育孩子,甚至寫作。 
本書以癌症期數做為大架構,回顧發現罹癌、病情惡化等重症患者與家屬都曾(或即將)經歷的過程,不只面對,更跨越死亡。 
她以優美的筆調描述她的家庭,她對自然、文學的熱愛,成功讓本書瀰漫奇蹟般的光亮與喜悅。她的最終勝利,不是以擊敗癌症的形式展現,而是拒絕讓癌症摧毀她擁抱生命的熱情。 
面對死亡,或許永遠沒有準備好的時候,但你可以選擇,從現在開始好好活出生命的真正意義。

The New York Times bestseller by poet Nina Riggs, mother of two young sons and the direct descendant of Ralph Waldo Emerson, is “a stunning…heart-rending meditation on life…It is this year’s When Breath Becomes Air” (The Washington Post).

We are breathless but we love the days. They are promises. They are the only way to walk from one night to the other.

Poet and essayist Nina Riggs was just thirty-seven years old when initially diagnosed with breast cancer—one small spot. Within a year, she received the devastating news that her cancer was terminal.

How does a dying person learn to live each day “unattached to outcome”? How does one approach the moments, big and small, with both love and honesty? How does a young mother and wife prepare her two young children and adored husband for a loss that will shape the rest of their lives? How do we want to be remembered?

Exploring motherhood, marriage, friendship, and memory, Nina asks: What makes a meaningful life when one has limited time? “Profound and poignant” (O, The Oprah Magazine), The Bright Hour is about how to make the most of all the days, even the painful ones. It’s about the way literature, especially Nina’s direct ancestor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and her other muse, Montaigne, can be a balm and a form of prayer.

Brilliantly written and exceptionally moving, it’s a “deeply affecting memoir, a simultaneously heartbreaking and funny account of living with loss and the specter of death. As Riggs lyrically, unflinchingly details her reality, she finds beauty and truth that comfort even amid the crushing sadness” (People, Book of the Week).

Tender and heartwarming, The Bright Hour “is a gentle reminder to cherish each day” (Entertainment Weekly, Best New Books) and offers us this important perspective: “You can read a multitude books about how to die, but Riggs, a dying woman, will show you how to live” (The New York Times Book Review, Editor’s Choice).
