“Katy Butler shows how, and I am profoundly grateful.” — Barbara Ehrenreich, author of "Nickel and Dimed" and "Natural Causes"
“A book to devour, discuss, dog-ear, and revisit. Wise counsel for the final decades of our ‘wild
and precious’ lives.” — Lucy Kalanithi, MD, widow of Paul Kalanithi, and editor of "When Breath Becomes Air"
“Surprisingly comforting. "The Art of Dying Well" belongs on the same shelf as Atul Gawande’s "Being Mortal". You will want to read it and keep it handy.” — Michael Dirda, Washington Post.
Katy Butler’s first book, "Knocking on Heaven’s Door", is a New York Times bestseller and Notable Book of the Year. "The Art of Dying Well" drew record-breaking crowds to her national book tour and was an Amazon bestseller. An award-winning science journalist and former reporter for the SF Chronicle, she is a past finalist for a National Magazine Award and a former Sausalito houseboat resident.
