From cooking for one, to hailing cabs, to unlocking her own front door, she had to piece together the practical mechanics of a new life — all while struggling with a grief that seemed unbearable at times.

In her new memoir, "Epilogue," Roiphe documents the day-to-day challenges of widowhood and her cautious quest for new love.
