Sara Marchant's memoir, Proof of Loss (Otis Books, 2019), examines the profound revelations that sometimes accompany dying and death.

Marchant's distinct, evocative, and at times humorous memoir grips the reader from all sides, illuminating Marchant's own tragic losses that had gone ignored for so long.
