I love this review because Copeland gets the current moment in death culture. She astutely writes:
“Our increasing willingness to talk about death in recent years could be considered progress—but it’s also something of a posture, which makes it easy to forget that we’re often broaching the subject of mortality in the most superficial of ways.
Specifically, there’s one kind of death talk that’s still much less accessible: end-of-life care. This topic is complicated and emotionally grueling and won’t succumb to metaphor. It’s also where the most compelling philosophical and moral questions about mortality reside.”
