Scott Simon, the NPR journalist and commentator, made news in the world of social media when he tweeted the details of his charming, theatrical mother's final days, which were spent in a Chicago ICU. His latest book, Unforgettable: A Son, a Mother, and the Lessons of a Lifetime (Flatiron Books, 2015), expands on those tweets, and it's a pleasure to get the full story, especially since Simon is a big fan of nurses. His mother, Patricia Lyons Simon Newman Gelbin, was a gem of a human being, and her larger presence in the book makes their story, well, unforgettable.
