Life is a chronic condition. We all know, intellectually, that our time on earth is limited. But what would we change if we knew it viscerally?Hailed by Glennon Doyle as 'the Christian Joan Didion', Kate Bowler was thirty-five when she was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer.

Before she got sick, she'd accepted the modern idea that life was an endless horizon of possibilities, a series of choices which if made correctly, would lead to a rewarding existence. But now she has to ask one of the most fundamental questions of all: How do we create meaning in our lives as we race against the clock? In No Cure for Being Human, Kate looks at the ways she has tried to wring purpose from her remaining time. She explores both the comically absurd and the profound, from attempting to remove bestsellers by hollow self-help gurus from the hospital gift shop while still attached to a drip, to crawling into bed with a four-year-old dragon after his birthday party, as mere minutes transform into a transcendent moment, hovering outside of time.

Kate discovers how to live bravely and make sense of it all, even when she's told it could come to an end at any moment. Frank and funny, dark and wise, Kate's irreverent, hard-won observations on dying in No Cure For Being Human chart a bold path toward learning new ways to live.
