Once More We Saw the Stars

Once More We Saw Stars: A Memoir

Jayson Greene

When she was two years old, Greta Greene was fatally struck by a falling brick while sitting on a park bench with her grandmother. In the aftermath of the child’s death, her father, journalist Jayson Greene, is spent spinning—an experience that he recounts in excruciating detail in his memoir. As he continues to live in a world without his daughter, Greene is forced to reckon with his grief, which easily could have swallowed him whole. But it didn’t. Written in fragile, emotional terms, Once More We Saw Stars is rooted in terrible tragedy, but Greene and his wife uncover a path to hope that leads them out of their despair.
