520    "In the tradition of The Year of Magical Thinking comes a 
       legendary editor's unflinching love song about his radiant
       wife, Margaret, and her battle with cancer. It was a warm 
       April in Pleasant Valley when Margaret Korda, normally a 
       fearless horsewoman, dropped her horsewhip while she was 
       riding. Such a mild slip was easy to ignore, but when 
       other troubling symptoms accumulated, she confided to her 
       husband, 'Michael, I think something serious is wrong with
       me.' Within a few rapid weeks, the fiercely independent, 
       former fashion model was diagnosed with brain cancer, 
       while Michael, once reliant on her steeliness, became her 
       caregiver, deciphering bewildering medical reports and 
       packing her beloved toiletries for the hospital. An 
       operation performed by a renowned surgeon allowed Margaret
       to ride her favorite competition horse Logan go Bragh a 
       few more times, but Margaret's tumors quickly returned-
       leaving her to grapple with the reality of impending 
       death. In rapturous prose, Korda, a modern- day Orpheus, 
       braids her heroic story with heartrending details of their
       final year together. Passing, a tender memoir, is a 
       testament to the transcendent possibilities of love"--
