Book review for "Becoming Dead Right: A Hospice Volunteer in Urban Nursing Homes” :

This may be Ms. Parker's greatest gift to her readers: bringing to life people and events that are indeed so often invisible. The writing is eloquent and powerful, and the stories are instructive and lasting. After finishing this book, I wanted to do more for other individuals who are dying, for as Ms. Parker so clearly imparts, the dying teach us so much about living well.
