Scott Simon is one of America’s most admired writers and broadcasters, having reported from all over the world and from many wars. He is now the award-winning host of Weekend Edition Saturday, the most-listened to news program on NPR. Simon has won a Peabody and an Emmy for his reporting and also has over 1.2 million followers on Twitter. When Simon began tweeting from his mother’s hospital room in July 2013, he didn’t know that his missives would soon spread well beyond his Twitter followers. Squeezing the magnitude of his final days with her into 140-character updates, Simon’s evocative and moving meditations spread virally. Unforgettable: A Son, a Mother, and the Lessons of a Lifetime (Flatiron Books) expands on those famous tweets to create a memoir that is rich, deeply affecting, heart-wrenching, and exhilarating. Unforgettable is not only one man’s moving celebration of his mother’s colorful life, it is a spirited, and inspiring tribute to the love between parent and child.
