A strong book on the art of dying
When he was 66 years old, the great educator and best-selling author Wolfgang Bergmann was told that he had terminal bone cancer. Soon after receiving this devastating diagnosis and after having been admitted to a palliative-care ward, he began to write down his thoughts and fears. In this way, he confronts himself and the reader with questions that are usually avoided: What is death? What does “I” mean when it is faced with the end? Brutally honest and without the comfort of religion, Wolfgang Bergmann reveals himself in all his anxieties and doubts – but also in his moments of surprising peace. Wolfgang Bergmann died shortly after completing this book.
