Abstract:

In this essay collection, Michael Cohen tells us about his surprise encounter with the remains of Frida Kahlo, about his father's murder, and about his son's close shave with death on the highway. His subjects can be as commonplace as golfing with close friends, amateur astronomy, birding, or learning to fly at the age of sixty. But he asks difficult questions about how we are grounded in space and time, how we are affected by our names, how a healthy person can turn into a hypochondriac, and how we might commune with the dead. And throughout he measures, compares and interprets his experience.
