NYTimes Book Review: ‘On Living’


The new book ‘On Living’ offers insight into the world of hospice care and end-of-life issues through the eyes of Hospice Chaplin, Kerry Egan. Egan weaves together personal reflection, witty observations and stories from her patients in this unique look at an often taboo topic.

““If there is any great difference between the people who know they are dying and the rest of us, it’s this: They know they’re running out of time. They have more motivation to do the things they want to do, and to become the person they want to become. . . . There’s nothing stopping you from acting with the same urgency the dying feel.” If there is one thing death teaches us, it’s how to live.”
