KATY BUTLER -- "Knocking on Heavens' Door"
When Katy Butler's father suffered a stroke, doctors outfitted him with a pacemaker, which kept his heart going while doing nothing to prevent a slide into dementia and misery. Part memoir, part medical history, Knocking on Heaven's Door is a map through the labyrinth of a broken medical system. Technological medicine, obsessed with longevity, is creating more suffering than it prevents. This memoir is inspiring the conversations we must have to light the path to a better way of death.
