Dr Perera’s Rating:
Mitch Albom writes evocatively regarding his meeting with a Professor whom he had met as a student but did not keep in touch with, until a chance meeting took place and reunited them. Thereafter, he visited him regularly until the once flamboyant professor succumbed to his own mortality. Albom captures the graciousness and the fortitude of his professor as he confronts death. The intimate portrayal causes the reader reflect on their own vulnerabilities in life as well as the stoic nature we often possess when confronting our frailties.
