I’d been circling this book for awhile, wanting and not wanting to read it. I finally succumbed and knew immediately why I’d been wavering for so long…
Today I finished it with tears rolling down my cheeks. Such exquisite raw beauty.
A memoir of a dying 36 year old neurosurgeon/writer, it’s a book about death, yet it’s so much a book about life.
For a writer and/or lover of language, it’s filled with the most poignant prose.
For a medic, I imagine, it’s filled with wisdom.
For all of us on this journey of life, it’s filled with so many truths.
For anyone writing a memoir, it’s pure inspiration.
There were so many powerful sentences and phrases I could have sat with forever…
Can highly recommend for those interested in a stirring, open hearted and damn honest read.
