9780615440699: The Present Giver

In her debut memoir, singer-songwriter Bar Scott brings the same emotional veracity to her personal story as she does to her music. In lyrical detail, The Present Giver is a moving account of Scott's search for meaning and hope when her infant son Forrest is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Shocked into the most demanding journey of their lives, she and husband Peter learn to accept the mysterious gifts the universe offers in order to not just survive, but transform, the unbearable. A compelling and beautiful story, The Present Giver offers comfort to anyone seeking solace and meaning in their life. Advance Praise for The Present Giver: "The Present Giver is a profound and beautiful book." -- Abigail Thomas -- author of A Three Dog Life "...once I read the first sentence of The Present Giver, I did something I never do: I stopped everything and spent the day living in the book until the end. If you want to feel the power of love and faith working in your life -- even when things are hard and hopeless -- please, please, please read this book." -- Elizabeth Lesser -- cofounder, Omega Institute; author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow "A gorgeous book....more than anything this is a book about the incandescent spirit of Forrest....It is impossible not to fall in love with this fearless, funny, mystical little boy who invites us to never forget that life is a precious fragile gift." -- Gail Straub -- cofounder The Empowerment Institute; author of Returning to My Mother's House "While The Present Giver wrapped me in heartbreak, I often laughed from deep in my belly. The rarest of treats." -- Martha Frankel -- author of Hats and Eyeglasses; executive director Woodstock Writers' Fest

From the Author:

The Present Giver grew out of my need to tell friends and family what was happening to me as our son, Forrest, dealt with the liver cancer that ultimately took his life. I wrote what would now be called a blog 4 or 5 days a week throughout Forrest's treatments and for years after he died. Lots of people were reading that blog in the end. Five years later, I felt compelled to put some of what I witnessed and learned into this book.  One of the biggest motivators was debunking the idea that a child's death is a parent's worst nightmare.  There's no doubt that the day Forrest was diagnosed was by far the most difficult day of my life. And there's also no question that his death and everything he had to deal with was hard. But it's also true that his short life was the best time of my life. I watched him inspire others, and I felt his love and mine grow into something I wouldn't live without today. He was a happy kid who happened to have cancer. He wasn't just a sickly kid who died. His joy inspired a lot of us. It wasn't false or contrived. It was real - as though being alive on this planet was the best place to be.  I hope you'll read the book and meet Forrest. I've heard people say they didn't want to read The Present Giver because it was going to be too sad. But when they finally did, they felt full, not empty or despairing. That's how I've felt too without Forrest's physical presence. The audio book was recorded by me with an introduction by my father, and is approximately six hours in length. The physical book can be read in an afternoon, or easily spread over months or years. Love, Bar

About the Author:

Bar Scott is best known for her voice and her songwriting. With The Present Giver, she debuts her writing in the form of memoir. Bar’s 2007 CD release Parachute, was voted amongst the top five of the year by Performing Songwriter Magazine. ASCAP has acknowledged Bar’s work with one of their highly coveted Special Awards for eleven consecutive years. She has performed at The Beacon Theater (NYC), the annual New Year’s Eve Peace Concert at St John the Divine (NYC), Clearwater Music Festival, Terrytown Music Hall and The Kimmel Center (Philadelphia) as well as many other venues large and small throughout the northeast. She has released six full-length recordings of original songs, as well as several CDs of cover songs. In 2009, she was invited by the Woodstock Memoir Festival to take part in a performance of autobiographical songs. At that same festival, she was the keynote reader at the final event of the festival, at which she read excerpts from this first book. She has spent nearly three years working with writer Abigail Thomas (A Three Dog Life), and was recently accepted by Tin House magazine to work with David Shields (Reality Hunger) in the their annual summer workshops. The Present Giver is the natural progression of Bar’s work. Her journey as a writer began in 2000 with the diagnosis of her 2-year old son Forrest’s stage IV liver cancer. Within days, she began what is now called a blog in which she described her thoughts and feelings as Forrest’s life unfolded.
