Best of ST in 2013: "The Path to a Better Way of Death"

Jan 3, 2014

On this edition of The Best of StudioTulsa, we revisit our discussion with Katy Butler, an accomplished journalist whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The Best American Essays, and The Best Buddhist Writing. Butler talks about her well-written and candid new memoir, "Knocking on Heaven's Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death." It's a book that utilizes a reporter's investigative skills, a daughter's love for her mother and father, and a careful writer's powers of observation and storytelling to explore what happens when our culture's fear of dying collides with the technological imperatives of today's physicians and hospitals.
