Summary
In July 2013, Oliver Sacks turned eighty and wrote an eloquent piece in The New York Times about the prospect of old age and the freedom he envisioned for himself in binding together the thoughts and feelings of a lifetime. Eighteen months later, he was given a diagnosis of terminal cancer--which he announced publically in another piece in The New York Times. Gratitude is Sacks's meditation on why life continues to enthrall him even as he faces the all-too-close presence of his own death, and how to live out the months that remain in the richest and deepest way possible. It's an impassioned statement about the joy of being a sentient being and the pleasures he continues to find from his intercourse with the world, as well as a meditation that readers of all ages will cherish and re-read for the comfort and wisdom it provides
