Abstract:

"DEATH. Even the word itself probably makes you a little uncomfortable. Just look at it, sitting there, demanding to be acknowledged. It might even make you a lot uncomfortable. We spend so much time trying to deny death, going on about our lives as if we and our loved ones are immune to it. Then, one day, its truth becomes undeniable. The Death of You won't flinch in looking into this vital, urgent matter. Like Miguel's first book, I Wanna Be Well: How a Punk Found Peace and You Can Too, this is a plain-spoken, culturally savvy book. Going on this wild ride with Miguel, we get real about death--and even have a few laughs at its expense"--
