Claire Bidwell Smith

The Rules of Inheritance: A Memoir           

As a 14-year-old only child, Claire Bidwell Smith was hurtled toward loss when both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer within months of each other. Defying a conventional framework, The Rules of Inheritance (Hudson Street Press) is told in a non-linear fashion, using the five stages of grief as a window into Claire’s experience. The result is a powerful, honest, and completely engaging journey, combining the eloquence of The Long Goodbye with the raw power of Girl, Interrupted.
