The fiction take:
THE TRUTH ABOUT DEATH: And Other Stories by Robert Hellenga
A wry and witty novella and story collection that cleverly addresses death with warmth, humor, and deep feeling, from one of “America’s most admired fiction writers.” (Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune)

Let’s talk about Atul Gawande’s BEING MORTAL

In BEING MORTAL, our most thoughtful and thought-provoking surgeon Atul Gawande argues that contemporary medicine can do a better, more humane job of managing death and dying by comforting and enhancing our experience, providing not only a good life but also a good end. Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, the bestselling author of COMPLICATIONS, BETTER and THE CHECKLIST MANIFESTO, offers “a deeply affecting, urgently important book…about living to the last with autonomy, dignity, and joy.”*

BEING MORTAL is a November 2014 Indie Next selection, has a starred review among many raves, and Dr. Gawande is kicking off a week of media appearances opposite Jon Stewart and Charlie Rose!
