Product description


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

Book Description

A straightforward and humorous narrative field guide for both the dying and those who love them, written by a palliative care nurse and awardwinning writer.
