Be careful as you tread… Someone may or may not be able to come to your rescue… You may become a character in a horrible story—your own tale… That no one knows about… You realize to your horror and astonishment that you shouldn’t have stepped over the Edge… But if you’re adventurous enough, come and walk the line of the Fringe with the characters of these chilling tales. Some of those have crossed over into the unknown… For example, meet Rick Misfort, who finds himself locked up in a Medieval Torture Chamber, or Chester van Stillmort, who’s frozen in a Cryogenic Deep Freeze and can’t get out… Or how you’ll discover that you cannot deplane off of Flight 136. Only Ms. Faith Foundered can see the Green Ghost Gremlins who are running all about, taking apart the plane and bringing it down!

LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY KIRKUS REVIEWS • In this moving, lyrical, and ultimately uplifting collection of essays, Michael Paterniti turns a keen eye on the full range of human experience, introducing us to an unforgettable cast of everyday people. Michael Paterniti is one of the most original and empathic storytellers working today. His writing has been described as “humane, devastating, and beautiful” by Elizabeth Gilbert, “spellbinding” by Anthony Doerr, and “expansive and joyful” by George Saunders. In the seventeen wide-ranging essays collected for the first time in Love and Other Ways of Dying, he brings his full literary powers to bear, pondering happiness and grief, memory and the redemptive power of human connection. In the remote Ukranian countryside, Paterniti picks apples (and faces mortality) with a real-life giant; in Nanjing, China, he confronts a distraught jumper on a suicide bridge; in Dodge City, Kansas, he takes up residence at a roadside hotel and sees, firsthand, the ways in which the racial divide turns neighbor against neighbor. In each instance, Paterniti illuminates the full spectrum of human experience, introducing us to unforgettable everyday people and bygone legends, exploring the big ideas and emotions that move us. Paterniti reenacts François Mitterrand’s last meal in a rustic dining room in France and drives across America with Albert Einstein’s brain in the trunk of his rental car, floating in a Tupperware container. He delves with heartbreaking detail into the aftermath of a plane crash off the coast of Nova Scotia, an earthquake in Haiti, and a tsunami in Japan—and, in searing swirls of language, unearths the complicated, hidden truths these moments of extremity teach us about our ability to endure, and to love. Michael Paterniti has spent the past two decades grappling with some of our most powerful subjects and incomprehensible events, taking an unflinching point of view that seeks to edify as it resists easy answers. At every turn, his work attempts to make sense of both love and loss, and leaves us with a profound sense of what it means to be human. As he writes in the Introduction to this book, “The more we examine the grooves and scars of this life, the more free and complete we become.” Praise for Michael Paterniti and Love and Other Ways of Dying “One of the best books I’ve read all year . . . These pieces are exceptional artifacts of literary journalism.”—Mark O’Connell, Slate “These pieces are extraordinary. . . . Journalism elevated beyond its ordinary capacities, well into the realm of literature.”—Columbia Journalism Review “A fearless, spellbinding collection of inquiries by a brilliant, globally minded essayist whose writing is magic and whose worldview brims with compassion . . . The size of Michael Paterniti’s curiosity is matched only by the size of his heart.”—Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See “Michael Paterniti is a genius.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of The Signature of All Things “One of the best living practitioners of the art of literary journalism, able to fully elucidate and humanize the everyday and the epic.”—Dave Eggers, author of The Circle “In each of these essays, Michael Paterniti unveils life for us, the beauty and heartbreak of it, as we would never see it ourselves but now can never forget it. Paterniti is brilliant—a rare master—and one of my favorite authors on earth.”—Lily King, author of Euphoria

He was a kind and friendly person. A father to five kids and grandfather to eight kids. He worked on the gold mines all his life. He was a hard worker and was dedicated to his family. He was very health conscious. He always woke up early before he went to work, at 3:30 a.m., to have a workout. He had his gym in the backyard. He pumped iron every morning. He was always in good shape. He was not a drinker or smoker. He was a healthy person, till he got cancer. He received chemotherapy. All his hair fell out, and he got very thin. Even then, when he wasn't feeling well, he would train with his weights. He got my brother and me into training with weights when we were young. We still do it. He beat cancer, once, but it returned after a year or two. It eventually got him. He wrote two books over a time span over four years: From Darkness to Light and Walter the Wonder Boy. He was hoping to get them published, but it never happened. It was his dream to make money from his books. He was an excellent father. We will always love and miss him.
