How to Survive Death and Other Inconveniences

How to Survive Death and Other Inconveniences

How to Survive Death and Other Inconveniences charts one woman’s attempt to confront her fear of death, as well as her desire to escape it. With gallows humor, Sue William Silverman recounts cruising New Jersey’s industry-blighted landscape in a mythic gold Plymouth, visiting emergency rooms for maladies both real and imagined, and collecting talismans all in order to ward off the inevitable. Though ultimately she knows there is no way to physically survive death, she reveals how language, memory, and metaphor offer slivers of transcendent immortality.
