“Will Schwalbe’s brave and soulful elegy to his remarkable mother, his recollection of their sparklingly literate conversations, is a timely reminder that one exceptional person, or one exceptional book, can be a torch in the darkness.”
—J.R. Moehringer, author of The Tender Bar

“In a heartfelt tribute to his mother, Schwalbe illustrates the power of the written word to expand our knowledge of ourselves and others . . . He introduces each of the authors with the insight of a veteran editor, highlighting their styles and strengths. Each chapter holds a subtle message fleshed out through their readings and discussions, and themes include gratitude, loneliness, feminism, faith, communication, trust, and grief.”
“. . . in the fall you are all going to want to read Will Schwalbe’s The End of Your Life Book Club, his sensitive and moving account of how he and his mother connected over their reading while she was undergoing chemo.”
— Anna Quindlen
