Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul

Stephen Jenkinson

Dying well, Jenkinson writes, is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is not a lifestyle option.


It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation all people owe their ancestors and their heirs. Die Wise dreams such a dream and plots such an uprising. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: This work makes our capacity for a village-mindedness – or breaks it.
