I really liked this book. A lot. The thoughts were fresh and wry enough to entrance me into following his ways of thinking. Yet they resonate in a way that tells me I have followed that line of thought myself. Recommend highly.
And then, as he's thinking about death, he begins to turn over some of the cliches our language has collected about death.
Marcus is hilarious when taking expressions literally, pulling them apart, finding scraps of meaning and revelation.
All that makes for a story that's funny and interesting and reaches out to pluck our common cord of wonder about our own mortality.
Fantastic piece. I've been sending it to friends for weeks now.
