Memory Card Full: When Rufus, Liz Weber’s oddly proportioned but adorable dog dies, her life begins to unravel. She is forced to let go of the one constant in her life and move forward. MEMORY CARD FULL is a memoir of her life as a bartender, model and aspiring writer in Manhattan before and after Rufus. Without him, she is alone and broken-hearted and her life spirals downward while her friends and family struggle to understand what she is going through. Prior to Rufus’s death, Liz Weber’s life was far from dull. Whether serving drinks to a gaggle of quirky regulars at a bar or walking around in her skivvies for extra cash as a lingerie model, she fought hard to remain a self-proclaimed “professional free spirit” and aspiring writer; even it meant enduring a lush for a manager or a cranky, Israeli-folk-music-loving boss. None of it really mattered as long as she had Rufus, who taught her about unconditional love in an untraditional way.
MEMORY CARD FULL is the story of Weber’s journey through grief, which leads to an unexpected encounter with the long unheard voice of the woman inside of her. On water skis at an adult sleepaway camp, Liz realizes that there are important things in life that Rufus’s love had caused her to avoid. Embracing her power and strength, she is finally able to accept that letting go of him is the best way to go on and find love for herself and others. Frank, funny, and deeply moving, MEMORY CARD FULL is a memoir for anyone who has loved and lost and found the space in that loss to become the person they were meant to be.
