I interview Joseph Monninger, a college professor and novelist who discovered, only three days after his retirement, that he had terminal lung cancer and likely only months to live. His memoir Goodbye to Clocks Ticking is a heartfelt, humanistic account of facing death and processing an unexpected reprieve.

Buy a copy of Goodbye to Clocks Ticking for yourself, and be sure to check out Joe's other books.
