2 3964 WILLIS, Connie Passage
Softcover; Mass Market PB Bantam Books: NY; c2001,2002; First Printing Very Good  
780 pages; Faint spine creases, spine head bumped and tiny tear repaired with archival tape, very light edgewear. ; The author's enjoyable blend of science and wit is turned toward a difficult subject. 'Psychologi st Dr Joanna Lander has spent two years at Mercy General Hospital studying patients who have been declared clinically dead but then revived. Many have had near-death experiences, NDEs, which are remarkably similar the world over. Then brilliant young neurologist Richard Wright discovers a way to induce an NDE using psychoactive drugs. He's convinced that NDEs are a survival mechanism, and that through them more patients might be brought back from the edge of death. When Joanna realizes that Richard's project is under threat due to a shortage of suitable subjects, she volunteers to take the dangerous journey to the limits of knowledge herself. Immediately fascinated by her simulated near-death experiences, Joanna becomes increasingly desperate to discover the meaning behind the strangely familiar images and feelings she encounters. As she begins to unravel the mystery, her sense of dread grows.' A plot twist in the last one hundred pages is unexpected and powerful. Recommended.; 'Once again, Willis has developed an idea that bears all the authority of a genuine insight: disturbingly plausible, compelling, intensely moving, and ultimately uplifting.' -Kirkus Reviews; Recommended by Norma H.

Jerome's very funny 'Three Men and a Boat' is the Partial inspiration for this wonderful novel and one of the author's favorite books. In the style of a Victorian novel, this book is "a comedic romp through an unpredictable world of mystery, love, & time travel... Ned Henry is badly in need of a rest. He's been shuttling between the 21st century & the 1940s searching for a Victorian atrocity called the bishop's bird stump.
