Bringing a light and listenable touch to the reading of her much-praised memoir, Egan shares her story and those of many clients, and finds joy and hope amid the phase of life called “dying”.  Don’t be put off by this audiobook’s mention of hospice. Our Contributing Editor, Aurelia C. Scott, not only gave the audiobook an AudioFile Earphones Award, she also put it among her personal “best listening” of the year.
