Abstract:

"Dr. Asimov, a psychiatrist and celebrated fiction writer, has penned this memoir with insight and wit on topics that she and her husband, Isaac Asimov, found especially meaningful over the years. In Notes for a Memoir, she has collected her thoughts (and a good many of Isaac Asimov's) on profound issues such as religion, philosophy, sex, personal identity, relatives, and mortality, and on lighter subjects as traveling together, camping, the golden Thirties, and the problems and joys of writing." "Replete with new information about Isaac Asimov and never-before published excerpts from his letters to her, in addition to family photos, this collection of personal reminiscences complements Isaac Asimov's one-volume autobiography, It's Been a Good Life, which Janet edited."--Jacket.
