Overview

It is not easy to be suddenly and unexpectedly faced with your own mortality when you are in the prime of your life.
"Concerning Howard" is the story of one determined man, who after a heart attack and debilitating strokes, beat the "odds," ninety-nine to one. He took a giant step beyond that, and returned to his place of employment in another job.
The focus is on Howard's hopes, ideals and struggle to cope with and find meaning and fulfillment in his life.
"Concerning Howard" is narrated by his wife, the author, the observer, one who knows him well and shares his long difficult road from challenge to triumph.
Throughout the book she asks numerous questions - some with possible answers-some she leaves to us all to answer.
In the early chapters of his recovery, she introduces a novel twist and shares many personal notes of their lives. Later, she includes a glimpse of his travels and career when he taught English at Robert College in Istanbul, Turkey where East meets West.
