Robert Kurson's list

This week at The Week magazine, Robert Kurson named "The List."

One of Kurson's picks:
Patrimony by Philip Roth

A brave and loving and beautifully honest farewell by the author to his dying father. It is impossible to read Roth’s true account without realizing how we say goodbye to our aging parents every day — and that we say goodbye to ourselves just as often.
Read about another title that Kurson called "The single book that truly changed my life."

Robert Kurson is the author of the 2004 bestseller Shadow Divers and the new book, Crashing Through: A True Story of Risk, Adventure, and the Man Who Dared to See, "the stunning true story of one man’s heroic odyssey from blindness into sight."
