Summary:"During her treatment for cancer, Mary Anne Schwalbe and her son Will spent many hours siting in waiting rooms together. To pass the time, they would talk about the books they were reading. Soon, they begin to trade books, and an informal book club of two was born. Through their wide-ranging reading, Will and Mary Anne-and we, their fellow readers-are reminded how books can be comforting, astonishing, and illuminating, changing the way that we feel about and interact with the world around us. A profoundly moving memoir of caregiving, mourning, and love-The End of Your Life Book club is also about the joy of reading, and the ways that joy is multiplied when we share it with others" -- Back cover.
