Erika Szymanski, November 14, 2010 (view all comments by Erika Szymanski)
An unparalleled (in my reading experience) discussion of death and dying, disguised in L'Engle's always-engrossing memoir story-telling style. This is the only book I've read that is gentle and hard-hitting, thought-provoking and easy to read, challenging but fun all at the same time.
