- DescriptionIn Thanatos and the Sage, written with palpable sensitivity and joy, readers will discover insight into living life to the fullest and facing death with a sense of completion. Narrated by the author, the book is enriched by imagined conversations between Thanatos, the Greek god of death, and Lavancy Cobbs, the author's mother and a woman portrayed with a quiet elegance, as the Sage who challenges the god and illuminates so many dark corners of our fears around death. As the Sage, she is also the wise voice that pulls us into these fascinating dialogues and scholarly debates about spirituality and its place in our lives as we approach death. Thanatos, a god both aloof and welcomed for his power to end life and free suffering souls from pain and grief, is a powerful voice that must be heard. Those who read this book the aging and those who care for the aging will learn much about how we approach death, and are sure to discover a new way of living.
