Praise for On Living
There’s nothing preachy about this book, nor is it at all depressing — although it is terribly moving. This is a poetic and philosophical and brave and uplifting meditation on how important it is to make peace and meaning of our lives while we still have them.—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
“It’s a brave thing to walk into the rooms of the dying with no props–to sit down, open your heart and your mind, and be present to whatever comes up. But that’s exactly what chaplain Kerry Egan does, and in On Living, she reveals some of what she has learned. What does come up? Anger, love, regret, secrets, stories, and insights, well-told and well-felt.” —Victoria Sweet, author of God’s Hotel
“When I forget the importance of kindness, when I forget to listen, when I no longer recognize the comfort of a quiet presence, when no words will help, when I lose sight of what is most important, I will want On Living within arm’s reach, always. I love this book.” —Abigail Thomas, author of A Three Dog Life and What Comes Next and How to Like It
