Following the death of her father, journalist and hospice volunteer Ann Neumann set out to examine what it means to die well in the United States. Her new book, THE GOOD DEATH: AN EXPLORATION OF DYING IN AMERICA (Beacon Press, February 2016), sits at an original and fascinating juncture of memoir, investigative journalism, comparative religion, health and healing, and the "good death" movement. Neumann is an accomplished journalist of religion, having edited for years The Revealer, a publication of the Center for Religion & Media at New York University. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Baffler, Bookforum, New York Law Review, Harvard Divinity Bulletin (forthcoming), Guernica magazine (where she's a contributing nonfiction editor) and others. Her monthly column "The Patient Body," about issues at the intersection of religion and medicine, now appears in The Revealer.
