Description

“Everything worth understanding and holding on to is in this book. A miracle indeed.”
Kelly Corrigan, New York Times bestselling author of The Middle Place & Tell Me More

Subscribe to Julie: The Unwinding of the Miracle on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to podcasts. The series begins on January 25th.

Join us on Monday, February 11th at Random House for a special Big Ideas Night celebrating the late Julie Yip-Williams and her searing memoir, THE UNWINDING OF THE MIRACLE. Julie’s widower, Joshua Williams, will be in conversation with Pineapple Street Media’s Eleanor Kagan, host of the new documentary podcast “Julie: The Unwinding of the Miracle,” and Julie’s Random House editor, Mark Warren.

Julie was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer at 37—but before that, she’d already dodged death. Born blind in Vietnam, Julie narrowly escaped euthanasia by her grandmother, only to flee the political upheaval of the late 1970s with her family. Eventually, she made it to America, where a surgeon at UCLA gave her partial sight. Against all odds, she became a Harvard-educated lawyer with a husband and two daughters. When she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, a new journey began. Growing out of a blog Julie started because she couldn’t find the guidance she needed, this is an inspiring, instructive and shattering story of a life lived well and cut too short.


Random House’s Big Ideas Night series is a forum for thought-provoking conversations with writers on the topics of politics, social justice, world affairs, technology, philanthropy, and more. These focused dialogues offer exclusive access for guests to dive deeper into a recently released book with fellow readers, and to network and engage directly with the innovators behind it.

Its podcasts are tailored to a diversity of ideas, interests, and identities—and all created with the same commitment to quality.
