The follow up to the international bestselling book, The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning, takes the reader beyond the “death cleaning” and decluttering so that others don’t have to.  Now unburdened by the stuff, both physical and emotional, Magnusson focuses on preparing for and understanding the process of growing old.  Practical and funny, this is an invitation to age exuberantly.

by Ross Gay

A poet and essayist, Ross Gay has a tender way with words in this newest book.
