About Into the Night
How do we live with death in our eye? With defiant rage as Dylan Thomas exhorts us? With gentle acceptance? Clenched fists? Mordant humor? Or, more commonly, with denial? What is our story and will it sustain us at the end? Into the Night features nine men and women of uncommon eloquence and intelligence grappling with these questions. For them, death is no longer an abstraction, far off into the future. They come from all walks of life, all ages, the dying and the healthy, believers and skeptics, some recognizable, some obscure. They have been shocked into mortality and are forever changed.
