"Being Mortal" by Atul Gwande


In Being Mortal, author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending

Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified. (Goodreads review)

Baltimore in the 1960s is the setting for this historical fiction about a real-life unsolved drowning.

The racism, classism, and sexism of 50 years ago wrapped up in a stylish, sexy, suspenseful period drama about a newsroom and the city it covers.(Kirkus review)

NPR All Things Considered talks with Laura about her book based on real life crime events in Baltimore
