The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe
When his mother, Mary Anne, was being treated for terminal cancer, Will Schwalbe would pass the time in waiting rooms with her reading and talking about the books they'd read. When they discover one day that they've both read the same book, their book club is born. As they talk about their books, this memoir explores the power of books to illuminate, comfort, and change the way we see the world and is a moving tribute to his mother as well as to literature.
