There simply are never enough days in the year to read all today's literary world has to offer, so herewith, the select few we think you'd be most sorry to miss. Jonathan Safran Foer continues in his tradition of kaleidoscopic fiction—his two previous novels, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close both explored the many layers of large-scale human tragedy through multifaceted lenses—with a sprawling account of several generations of a single Jewish family navigating its identity in a changing landscape in America and the Middle East. Set primarily in Washington, D. At the young age of 36—on the cusp of completing the rigorous cross-disciplinary training that tried his emotional stability, marriage, and physical health—Stanford neurosurgical resident Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with lung cancer. Inspired by his "ticking clock," the gifted and determined young doctor set out to write this reflection on not just his own experience of striving for professional and personal fulfillment, but also on the general truths of human morality and the inseparability of the science of the brain from the immense, unknowable miracle of the human mind. At once a breathtakingly honest and alternatingly harrowing and uplifting memoir, this book is also a powerful treatise on how each of us can find true meaning in life from a man whose own was cut devastatingly short.
