Life and Other Near-Death Experiences by Camille Pagán

★★★★ ☐ The publisher has provided a copy for review.
What happens when your whole life unravels? Challenges of health, relationships, marriage?

You take time off to evaluate and refocus, even when time is short.

At times humorous, other times poignant and sad, the novel takes us into the process of dealing with a terminal illness. Libby takes herself from her routines, shakes up her world by traveling and trying new adventures, and considers what's important to her after she's diagnosed with cancer.

This is not fun reading but encourages emotional engagement and consideration of what it means to be human.
