This book on how to die is also a blessedly saccharine-free guide for how to live. * New York Times *
Sallie Tisdale's elegantly understated new book pretends to be a user's guide when in fact it's a profound meditation. It also pretends to be about how to die. Actually, it's about how to live. -- David Shields, bestselling author of REALITY HUNGER
Sallie Tisdale's life experiences and down-to-earth wisdom takes readers beyond the paralysing dread of death and advances profound opportunities for intimacy, connection and completeness at life's end. -- Dr Michael Barbato, author of CARING FOR THE DYING
[a] hard, clear-eyed look at death and dying * Dublin Review of Books *
An easy, chatty writer who never says anything the way you're expecting, which makes reading her a pleasure. * Boston Globe *
Her essays unfold their subjects and stories with remarkable precision, allowing us, gradually, to see and feel for the people she describes. * New Yorker *
