"When Blood Is Gone is a rich and touching act of homage to a family, brought to life by its one surviving member, a gifted storyteller whose work has prepared him to say--clearly and movingly--what happened."

--Judson Mitcham, Author of The Sweet Everlasting and Poet Laureate of Georgia

"When Blood Is Gone is a straight to the heart book that accounts the life, love, and loss of a family. It makes you laugh and cry and remember everyone you've ever been close to."

-- Cyndi Lauper, Author of Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir 

"Every happy family story ends as tragedy because someone always dies first. Terrell Tannen's powerful and emotional memoir, When Blood is Gone, charts his painful course of personal loss, beginning as an eleven-year-old boy when his father expires in his arms, through the next half-century as both his mother and only brother die the same way. Moving and heartfelt, this book will linger like a haunting melody in the reader's memory."

--William Hjortsberg, Author of Falling Angel and Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan
