Life in the Shadow of Death

A Conversation with Jason Rosenthal and Miles Rosenthal

November 23, 2020

Jason B. Rosenthal is the author of My Wife Said You May Want To Marry Me, an inspiring memoir and personal account of life, love, loss, and new beginnings. He is also the subject of the widely circulated essay written by his wife, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, titled “You May Want to Marry My Husband,” a piece that is heartbreaking, brutally honest, and funny. It is a creative play on a personal ad for Jason—in which a dying wife encourages her husband to go on and find happiness after her death.

Miles Rosenthal is the son of Jason B. and Amy K. Rosenthal. He is, in part, the subject of both his parents’ testimonies.
