When Breath Becomes AirWhen Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not everyone wants to read a book about dying. But this is a remarkably gripping book about a man who faces death and focuses on life instead. Neurosurgeon Paul Kalanithi died of lung cancer at the age of 37. This inspiring memoir was published posthumously. Highly recommended.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s a lot to be said for a writer who made a teetotaller enjoy a book about an advertising executive in rehab for alcohol addiction. This dark yet funny memoir tells it like it is, chronicling the gay protagonist’s search for love, friendship and a normal life. Recommended. View all my reviews
