Whence and Whither: On Lives and Living. Thomas Lynch

Whence and Whither is a series of poems, fiction and nonfiction pieces on the topic of living.  The author is a mortician and a National Book Award finalist.  Who among us is better prepared for such writings?

Lynch has a profound demand of the English language and a unique manner of observing
people, circumstances and fare. 

You fight to find a place to set the book down.  It's late.  You're tired.  Your mind is taxed.  But, find a place you must.  There are tasks to be done tomorrow.
