The Unwinding of the Miracle: A Memoir of Life, Death, and Everything That Comes After

Julie Yip-Williams

When she was a baby living in Vietnam, Julie Yip-Williams’ grandmother wanted her to be euthanized for being blind. Yip-Williams not only survived, but also went on to create an incredible life: she moved to America, attended Harvard Law School, got married and started a family. But when she was 37, a terminal colon cancer diagnosis changed everything. In her memoir, Yip-Williams breaks down her experiences as an immigrant, mother and partner as she looks back on her life, courageously determined to make sense of it all.
