about

Death, Brooklyn, and the Gritty Side of Grace is a hospice social worker's journey through her internship in the wilds of Brooklyn. It weaves together various patients' stories and the lessons gleaned from them. She meets a man who dies in his family's living room with nowhere for the body to go; a middle-aged man who angrily, tenaciously fights death (and fights his hospice worker); a cancer patient, who is eerily - frighteningly - similar to her. And the unlikely mentor, a Jamaican nurse, whose friendship provides guidance and spiritual insight. Both darkly comic and spiritually uplifting, it's the story of how, immersing herself in death, an irreverent Gen X-er found her life's work.
