Praise

‘Nancy Mairs writes knowingly, even lovingly, about a subject most of us seek to avoid: death and its essential place in life. Her gripping meditations. . . both comfort and provoke with their spiritual strength and hard-won wisdom.’ –O Magazine

‘The ten essays in Nancy Mairs’s A Troubled Guest . . . radiate the truest kinds of insight about life, illness, death, and above all, love.’ –Elle Magazine

‘Through these evocative and often affecting essays, Mairs charts a territory that defines the corporeal and the spiritual, delineating as much about how we live as how we die.’ –Publishers Weekly

‘In clear, unaffected prose that quickly establishes -along with her candor-an intimacy with the reader, Mairs begins by explaining her feelings toward her own impending death. . . . Not self-help by any stretch, but it will be of interest to anyone recently touched by death.’ –Kirkus Reviews
