Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A wonderfully rich and evocative investigation into the choices that confront us at the edges of life and death."—Lawrence Tribe, The New York Times Book Review

"Dworkin has made a miracle, so meticulous and rich a reformulation of how we think about the borders between life and death that it illuminates the very nature of how we live our lives."—Joan Didion.
