“Sean Murphy brings a poetic voice and insightful contemplations to the largely unexplored territory of dying and death. With deep compassion and philosophical curiosity, he processes his individual grief while confirming the universality of loss.”
—Roy Remer, Director of Volunteer Programs, Zen Hospice Project
"As an oncologist treating a difficult and often fatal group of cancers, I witness firsthand as patients and their ‘villages’ cope with the diagnosis. So many decisions, so much emotion, and everyone does it a bit differently. No one path will serve; instead it is a truly individual course we choose. Sean Murphy’s book is a great new resource for patients and families, and frankly for us all."
- Dr. John Marshall, Chief, Oncology at Georgetown Hospital
Murphy has cleverly transformed Byron from Lord to dot-com shlub. Instead of chasing minotaurs through labyrinths, he hunts for meaning among the cubicles. Not to Mention a Nice Life is a wry, acerbic, and terrifying critique of the notion that there is really nothing left to critique. Modern Corporate America is less an enemy than a state of reality. They have won. We have lost. Byron, like the rest of the 99%, is left with layoffs, failed stock options and the slight possibility of love. Read this very funny book. Like, right now. And then pour yourself an ice-cold laudanum.
-Sean Beaudoin, author of Wise Young Fool and Welcome Thieves
“When I started Sean's book, I read a section and said to myself, ‘I'm going to email Sean to tell him how amazing that sentence is.’ Then as I read a little further I thought, ‘No, I'm going to email Sean to tell him what an amazing depth of knowledge and perception he's giving us.’ And then, yes, you got it, on the very next page he wrote something that made me think, ‘His Mom is looking down on Sean with unending love for what he just wrote. This is one amazing book!”
–Donald R. Gallehr, Director Emeritus, Northern Virginia Writing Project
