by Janet Asimov
Notes from Isaac Asimov's widow on her life as a writer and life with her very famous, very prolific, gregarious and eccentric husband. As an Asimov fan from way back, and having read two of Isaac's early autobiographies, this short work made me smile with recognition at recollections of Isaac as it introduced the woman who loved him. The title is apt; this is clearly notes for a memoir as opposed to a full-blown narrative. But it's enough to get the essence of Isaac and Janet, their relationship, her life as a writer and her process of working through her grief.
