Summary
This is that rare and wonderful thing - a joyful book about death. The one certainty about life is that everybody is going to die. Yet again and again, we deny this central fact of our lives. We ignore it, hoping it will go away, putting our heads in the sand. We're living in an aging society, where we are all living longer, healthier lives, yet we find ourselves less and less prepared for our inevitable end. Leah Kaminsky is an award-winning writer and an Australian GP, who is confronted by death and mortality on a daily basis. She sees - and shares - our fears of death and dying. But she also sees some people, inspiring people, whose response to their imminent death is to choose, instead, to consciously embrace life. Like 90 year old Julia, a great-great-grandmother, officially an LOL in Leah's medical terminology (little old lady), who wants to compete in the Senior Olympics
