What Are You Going Through

Nunez Sigrid

An unexpectedly life-affirming novel about choosing to die, by National Book Award winner and bestselling author of THE FRIEND
'Love, death, friendship, compassion & SO MUCH wisdom.

I just adore Sigrid Nunez' PAULA HAWKINS
A woman visits a friend who is dying of cancer. Brilliant and stubborn, her friend makes a momentous request. She wishes to end her life on her own terms - and she wants the narrator's help. Stricken, she agrees. 'I promise,' says the friend, 'to make it as much fun as possible.'
What follows is an extraordinary tale of a friendship put to the greatest test: to witness, unflinching, its end. It is also a portrait of the way we live now, in a world endlessly troubled by crises, and the dramatically changing nature of human relationships in our time. 'I was totally overwhelmed by this extraordinary novel. Even if it weren't about a subject dear to my heart I would be equally thrilled by its grace and profundity. Sentence by sentence it's a total joy - and sometimes, much to my surprise, laugh-out-loud funny' DEBORAH MOGGACH
'If the meaning of life is that it ends, Nunez gets to the nub of meaning in her brilliant novel. I loved it as much as The Friend' SUSIE STEINER
'When I open one of [Sigrid Nunez's] novels, I almost always know immediately: This is where I want to be ... What Are You Going Through is as good as The Friend, if not better' NEW YORK TIMES
'A true pleasure to read, a novel bursting with wit, warmth, and human empathy' INDEPENDENT
'Riveting ... a rich meditation on companionship, loss and love' TLS
