An Unexpected Twist


Andy Borowitz

This is a surprisingly funny book about a near-death experience, which will almost certainly make you appreciate the normal operations of your digestive tract a bit more. Borowitz developed a blockage in his colon which rather quickly became life-threatening. The book he has written about the experience is also about how little control we really have over life, and how delightful life is, nonetheless.

Favorite Thing: 
The reminder of how utterly amazing it is that something as complicated as the human body ever manages to work- let alone that it usually manages to work.
