More About Creatures of a Day by Irvin D. Yalom
 
 
 
Overview
In this stunning collection of stories, renowned psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom describes his patients strugglesas well as his ownto come to terms with the two great challenges of existence: how to have a meaningful life yet reckon with its inevitable end. We meet a nurse who must stifle the pain of losing her son in order to comfort her patients pains, a newly minted psychologist whose studies damage her treasured memories of a lost friend, and a man whose rejection of psychological inquiry forces even Yalom himself into a crisis of confidence. Creatures of a Day is a radically honest statement about the difficulties of human life, but also a celebration of some of the finest fruitslove, family, friendshipit can offer. Marcus Aurelius has written that we are all creatures of a day. With Yalom as our guide, we will find the means to make our own day not only bearable, but also meaningful and joyful."
