    "Vulnerability"

    I'd recommend this book far and wide. It is a tale of love in face of fatal disease, and it is told with poignancy and great affection. I really admire the two men central to the narrative, and the way that they lived and loved. Further, the way that Johnson writes about Larry the teacher is just awe inspiring, and I much appreciated his reflection on nobility, virtue, and grace in the face of death.

    I only gig the performance because Fenton Johnson has the voice of a Mormon general authority... and that evokes memories I don't care for. But the story was strong enough to overcome my aversion, so I have to give my ungrudging respect and admiration.
