Gonzalez–Crussi is a marvelous storyteller as well as a meticulous observer, and he has written a book about death that is pulsing with life.” —The New York Times Book Review“Gonzalez–Crussi comes off as a sort of dream dinner guest: urbane, informed, ironic, and entertaining.” —San Francisco Examiner–Chronicle“Gonzalez–Crussi [writes] with a flowing prose style … indulging some perceptive observations on politics and religion en route….

He draws attention to the profound difference between the words ‘resuscitation’ and ‘reactivation’ in near–death situations…. There is much here for immediate and future pondering.” —Booklist“Elegant… While Gonzalez–Crussi brings some levity to his subject here, the overall tone is serious—appropriately so—and should stir readers into their own memento mori.” —Kirkus Reviews
