This is their story, overflowing with humor, insight, and love.In beautifully crafted vignettes, Janis brings their deepening relationship to life-both the joy and the imposition, the happiness and the heartache. Early on, she watches with relief as her father adjusts to an assisted-living facility, buoyed by a resilient spirit and a network of new friends. She and her father share the intimacy of afternoons in the park, discovering wonder in the colors of a sandwich or a rose, and solace in a smile or a reassuring touch. But as Pops health declines, Janis finds herself tested by daunting health-care and financial decisions, and the guilt of trying to balance her fathers growing needs against her own.From her unique perspective as a therapist-weaving together her personal story with the confessions of her patients -Janis explores the emotional and practical complexities of parenting a parent.

In sparkling prose, she offers a language for this ordinary, extraordinary experience, helping other caregivers feel less crazy and alone. Inspiring, deeply moving, and frank, Life with Pop is an ultimately comforting meditation on a universal experience, as well as a book with profound lessons on how to grow old gracefully.
