    At the age of 60, Cory Taylor is dying of melanoma-related brain cancer. Her illness is no longer treatable: She now weighs less than her neighbor's retriever. As her body weakens, she describes the experience - the vulnerability and strength, the courage and humility, the anger and acceptance - of knowing she will soon die. Written in the space of a few weeks, in a tremendous creative surge, this powerful and beautiful memoir is a clear-eyed account of what dying teaches.

    At the age of 60, Cory Taylor was dying of melanoma-related brain cancer. With her illness no longer treatable, she began at the start of 2016 to write about her experiences and, in an extraordinary creative surge, wrote what would become Dying: A Memoir.

    2015 erfährt Cory Taylor, dass sie nicht mehr lange zu leben hat. In nur wenigen Wochen hat sie ihre Memoiren verfasst, die kurz vor ihrem Tod im Juli 2016 erschienen. Auf bemerkenswerte Weise reflektiert sie über den Sinn der Zeit, die ihr noch bleibt. Sie lässt uns teilhaben an ihrer Erfahrung, was das Sterben sie gelehrt hat. Der universellen Frage über ein Leben nach dem Tod begegnet sie als nicht-religiöser Mensch in einer für sie selbst überraschenden spirituellen Form. Ergreifend und zutiefst weise sind ihre Gedanken über das Sterben, die zugleich eine Hymne an das Leben sind.
