Product Description: 

Author: David Gates; Readers: Lesa Lockford and Eric Michael Summerer. Gates's characters, young or old or neither, are well educated, knowledgeable, often creative and accomplished, whether as a doctor or a composer, an academic or a journalist. Every one of them carries a full supply of the human condition: parents in assisted living, or assisted dying facilities, too many or too few people in their families and marriages, the ties that bind a sometimes messy knot, age an implacable foe, impulses pulling them away from comfort into distraction or catastrophe. Self aware, they refuse to go gently, even when they're going nowhere fast, in settings that range across the metropolitan and suburban Northeast to the countryside upstate and in New England.
