We will all die. Yet modern culture fears and avoids the subject of death. This book deals sensitively with a universal experience. Studs Terkel explores the ultimate human experience, that of death and the possibility of life afterward. Death is the one experience we all share but cannot know. In "Will the Circle be Unbroken?", a wide range of people address the final experience and its impact on the present in which we live. As well as the elderly and the sick, Terkel uses his talent to draw on the experiences of those who work closely with the dying - paramedics, police, fire-fighters, doctors and the recently bereaved. In talking about the ultimate and unknowable culmination in our lives, these people give voice to their deepest beliefs and hopes, reflecting on the lives they have led and what still lies before them. The result is a universal and moving account of death and religion.
