"This is an unforgettable sorry of a "full-time witness" to trauma and its aftershocks. With refreshing candor and a brilliant sense of humor, Sarah takes us through the maze of caring for a loved one who has suffered a traumatic brain injury and reckons deeply with what her own recovery should look like. This book will stay with me for a long time."
- Leigh Stein, author or Land of Enchantment
"In The Shame of Losing, Sarah Cannon captures the roller coaster from heartbreak to hope; from despondence to renewal, that she and her family have been riding since everything changed. This is a book about the brutal realities of a traumatic brain injury, but it is also about a young mother trying to save her own life. Honest, poetic, stark and stunning: a debut memoir that you will never forget."
-Ann Hedreen, author of Her Beautiful Brain
