The Truth About Death," the title novella of this virtuosic collection, is a masterpiece of sardonic humor that confronts Death head on and emerges bloody but unbowed. Simon, an undertaker, embalms his own father and faces his own death. Louisa, Simon's mother, makes peace with her husband over his dead body in a cooler in the basement of the funeral home. Simon contemplates the mystery of death over a plate of spaghetti cacio e pepe in Rome with an Italian undertaker. The dog, Maya--who works as a greeter at the funeral home where she comforts those who are grieving hardest--eventually makes the truth about death known to Elizabeth, Simon's wife. New Yorker cartoons keep the family laughing during the most difficult months, Elizabeth decides to show her own cartoons (included here), to the New Yorker cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff, at his office in New York. The serious issues cleverly addressed in The Truth About Death are touched with warmth, humor, and deep feeling in the eight "Other Stories," not by invoking comforting fairy tales but by accepting the fact that death and grief are part of the natural order of things. As Maya explains to Elizabeth, "It's just the way things are.

This story starts with the death of an old man, Alexander (Alex) Sykes, and his afterlife life. Upon his return from a trip to the astral plane, he discovers that police have been called to his apartment. He quickly finds out why: he was dead. Alex was looking at his own corpse! There was nothing that he can do now, so he left. Alex looked into the night sky and said, I want to go there, and he was off. He couldnt explain it, so he just went with it. He discovered several inhabited planets, some with what are probably animal life, but as to whether they were sentient, Alex didnt know. After a few more planets, Alex found the Qythedefinitely intelligent on a planet that was more urban than not. After his first contact with the Qythe, Alex discovers that they have an advanced mental ability that our earthly computers cant match. Yet despite their great intellects and history, they are doomed, and unless Alex and his growing circle of friends and allies can help, the Qythe will die. So Alex, with his own mental ability, discovered by accident, does what it takes to convince others of the need to work together to save his new friends: Dr. Philips, physicist of JPL; Dr. Bernstein, director of Physics, JPL; Dr. Colin Andres, psychiatrist/parapsychologist, JPL; Dr. Dawn Runningdeer, quantum physics, West Coast Institute of Technology; and Rosa Seville, former NASA astronaut. These and others will be responsible for the salvation of the Qythe, but even with the help of advanced science from the Qythe, can Alex and his human friends pull it off and still deal with the threat of destruction from one of his own?

Sarah Crawford, her parents, and baby brother vacation every summer with her beloved grandparents, Gram and Gramps. Her favorite activity is a special night of star catching with Gramps and her dad. On a summer night like many others, she overhears her grandparents talking about how much they are looking forward to retirement, selling their house, and traveling. The next day, however, everything changes. Sarah’s parents and brother are killed in a car accident on their way to the airport and Sarah herself is gravely injured. It’s touch and go, but Sarah gradually recovers. Sarah, a smart girl, feels guilty that she’s ruined her grandparents’ retirement dreams and comes up with a plan of her own when they are forced to go back to Washington to sell her family’s home. A custody hearing with her other grandparents, who have not been part of her life, complicates matters but may be the answer she’s looking for. When that doesn’t lead to an automatic stay in Washington, Sarah takes matters into her own hands and sets out on a cold, dark night to her best friend’s house. She escapes dangers on the street and police officers take her back home. It’s only in the face of how much more they could have lost that her grandparents realize their dreams—now changed—may come true after all. Star Catching, an unforgettable young adult novel, shares the tender story of a family struck by tragedy that discovers what is truly important, just in time for Christmas.
