Beschreibung

Inspired by his elderly father's vitality and optimism, the author of Remote offers a personal meditation on mortality as he chronicles his own life and that of his family from cradle to grave, integrating biological details with cultural history and criticism, philosophical speculation, and quotations to furnish a portrait of human existence as revealed through a single family. Reprint. 35,000 first printing. David Shields is the author of eight previous books, including Black Planet: Facing Race during an NBA Season (a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award), Remote: Reflections on Life in the Shadow of Celebrity (winner of the PEN/Revson Award), and Dead Languages: A Novel (winner of a PEN/Syndicated Fiction award). A senior editor of Conjunctions, Shields has published essays and stories in dozens of periodicals, including The New York Times Magazine, Harper's Magazine, Yale Review, Village Voice, Salon, Slate, McSweeney's, and Believer. He teaches at the University of Washington and lives in Seattle with his wife and daughter.
