“Gracefully Gone”

Hi people,
there are some very exciting news I can tell you now, the biggest announcement first:

1. Alicia has written a book which will be available on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com some day between June 10-16th, in time for Father’s Day. The book’s called Gracefully Gone. It’s a fusion of two journals, Alicia’s, and her father’s, Matthew Coppola. His journal was written in 1982, two years after his diagnosis with and remission of brain cancer, Alicia’s was written in 1990-91.

Here’s a picture of the book cover and a blurb (both © Alicia Coppola)

Gracefully Gone

I am a mother, a wife and an actress. But first I was a daughter. At the age of 12, my world became the inside of a washing machine when my dad was diagnosed with brain cancer.
In Gracefully Gone, the following ten years are documented in Journal form, from diagnosis to remission, in my father, Matt’s words. Then as he lay dying, a decade later, through mine as I struggled to grow up within cancer’s murky shadow. There are a lot of tears and a lot of laughter, (it wasn’t all horrific!) but most of all, love. This is a duet between father and daughter. It is the literary version of Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole’s Unforgettable. Cancer may have taken him from me, from our family and from my daughters, but it cannot take my memories and my love.

I will keep you updated and post the links to the book at Amazon and Barnesandnoble as soon as they are available.

Look out for more information soon.
