Inspired by his elderly father's vitality and optimism, the author of Remote offers a personal meditation on mortality as he chronicles his own life and that of his family from cradle to grave, integrating biological details with cultural history and criticism, philosophical speculation, and quotations to furnish a portrait of human existence as revealed through a single family. Simultaneous.
"[THE THING ABOUT LIFE IS THAT ONE DAY YOU'LL BE DEAD] is something more complex than a natural history of death. It is sui generis, and that's high praise these days."
Alex Beam, New York Times Book Review, 02/24/2008
