Tyler Feder had just white-knuckled her way through her first year of college when her super cool mom was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. Now, with a decade of grief and nervous laughter under her belt, Tyler shares the story of that gut-wrenching, heart-pounding, extremely awkward time in her life - from her mom's first oncology appointment to her funeral and shiva week through the beginning of facing reality as a motherless daughter. She shares the sting of loss that never goes away, the uncomfortable post-death firsts, and the deep-down, hart-to-talk-about feelings of the grieving process - but also the ways a premature death of a loved one can eventually enrich your life. Dancing at the Pity Party is a frank and refreshingly funny look at what it's like to grieve - for anyone struggling with loss who just wants someone to get it.
