From the Editor

What if the worst thing that ever happened to you was also the best? That’s the question that Camille Pagán poses in her extraordinarily entertaining new novel, and after finishing it, I wanted to ask myself that question over and over again. Reading the novel was so enjoyable—like having a best friend sit on the couch with me, drinking a glass of wine and discussing life’s problems, laughing and crying the whole time. The experience changed me.

Our protagonist, Libby Miller, receives a double dose of bad news, and her seemingly perfect world is upended. Usually sunny and unflappable, she reacts in a distinctly un-Libby way: she decides to change everything that has embodied her life up until that moment. A “last-chance” trip to the Caribbean ensues, where she discovers things about herself and the world that she never imagined.

Pagán has written the kind of story you think about long after turning the last page, recommend to friends, and post about online. It is a frank, funny, and tear-inducing examination of this beautiful mess called life.

From Booklist

When Libby Miller receives a shocking cancer diagnosis from a less-than-empathetic doctor, she thinks it’s the worst thing that could happen to her. Having watched her mother slowly and agonizingly lose her own battle with cancer, Libby is determined that she will not put her family through a similar experience. She decides to forego treatment and is about to break the news to her husband, but before she can, he delivers astonishing news of his own. With no marriage to speak of and only months remaining, Libby decides to live like there’s no tomorrow. Telling no one of her plans, she escapes to the equatorial sun of Vieques, a small island near Puerto Rico. But will her resolve withstand the concern of her twin brother, the friendship of her island landlady, and the growing love of a handsome Puerto Rican pilot? Instead of doom and gloom, Libby’s journey is one of hilarious turns and heartfelt realizations. Though unrealistic, it is just the uplifting medicine some doctors would order. —Cortney Ophoff


“More than just a cancer narrative, Life and Other Near Death Experiences is a story about seizing life and ditching what others expect of you. It will make you laugh. It will make you ugly cry. And it will make you want to live your own life to its greatest potential.” —HelloGiggles

“Camille Pagan's Life and Other Near-Death Experiences is anything but formulaic: it's unceasingly delightful, and Libby Miller is a sensitive, super-smart Everywoman hero you'll come to adore.” —Bustle

“Tackling two serious topics with grace and humor, Ms. Pagan has delivered a novel full of rich characters and a quick-paced story line...This story is an easy read about uneasy topics, something hard to accomplish but that Ms. Pagan does wonderfully.” —Manhattan Book Review
