Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviews. "In Loren Mayshark's Death: An Exploration: Learning to Embrace Life's Most Feared Mystery, he writes, 'experiencing death has dragged me into emotional pits and has also compelled me to deep contemplation. This journey has filled me with wonderment as well as remorse.' I found those sentences to be humble ones which transmit the abstract premise of his book into something we can explore in a concrete way. His narrative voice is at the same time both scholarly and personal. It lets the reader join him in trying to figure out what this concept of death is. His observations emerge out of his curious youth, grow to an adolescent's pondering, and then further mature with the wise citations of well-researched information from philosophers, scientists, and other distinguished thinkers. The author makes no definite assertions in his book, allowing the reader to stay open to nuance. Like Mayshark, we are all immature in answering death's puzzling question." -Peter Hamilton, author of The Devil Hates a Coward "In Death: An Exploration: Learning to Embrace Life's Most Feared Mystery Loren Mayshark shares his personal inquiry of what death is or could be in the stories of others as they faced the inevitable and find solace in religion, science, nature, spiritual guidance. But the exploration doesn't stop there. While knowing and understanding death often remains a conundrum, this exploratory primer suggests what is separate can be whole; what defines death, defines life. Death: An Exploration: Learning to Embrace Life's Most Feared Mystery is a terrific read for those embarking on their pursuit of the illusive, the contrary, the inescapable: death... and life." Linda A. Lavid, author of The Dying Of Ed Mees

About the Author

Loren Mayshark was fortunate to have parents who offered him opportunities to see the world and introduce him to many exciting places which instilled in him a passion for travel. As his wanderlust grew, he journeyed to more than thirty US states and at least as many foreign countries while visiting four continents. After college, he supported his itinerant lifestyle by working dozens of jobs including: golf caddy, travel writer, construction worker, fireworks salesman, substitute teacher, and vineyard laborer. Predominantly his jobs have been in the restaurant industry. He cut his teeth as a server, Maître D, and bartender at San Francisco's historic Fisherman's Grotto #9, the original restaurant on the Fisherman's Wharf. While working with a colorful crew of primarily Mexican and Chinese co-workers, he gained a passion for Spanish and spent several months wandering through South America. While living in New York City he attended both the famed Gotham Writers Workshop and the prestigious New York Writers Workshop where he was inspired to assiduously learn the craft of writing. He is a regular contributor to Can the Man(cantheman.com), an alternative media resource focused on social justice, and The Jovial Journey (thejovialjourney.com), a website dedicated to food, drink, and travel. He has written for The Permaculture Research Institute and Uisio among other prominent outlets. He received a B.A. in World History from Manhattanville College in 2004 while minoring in World Religions. He attended the M.A. History program at Hunter College in Manhattan.
