 About the Book 

There is a kind of pain in life, writes Eugene Kennedy, that has nothing to do with sickness or our sometime savagery. It is the suffering of healthy persons, as undramatic as it is inevitable, as commonplace as it is uncomforted. It is the painMoreThere is a kind of pain in life, writes Eugene Kennedy, that has nothing to do with sickness or our sometime savagery. It is the suffering of healthy persons, as undramatic as it is inevitable, as commonplace as it is uncomforted. It is the pain with a thousand private faces, the pain that comes from just being human. In more than 60 insightful meditations, Kennedy helps us to better understand our human condition, and to live with humor, compassion, and purpose. His book is not a cure for our loneliness or doubt or the thousand other pains that come with being alive, but it can get us through a bad day - even bad weeks - and help us to help others do the same.
