Laurence Gonzales began his successful publishing career in 1989 with the publication of The Still Point and later The Heroa€™s Apprentice (1994), both with the University of Arkansas Press. From these collections of essays he went on to write for renowned magazines in addition to publishing several books, including the best selling Deep Survival. His journalism garnered two National Magazine Awards, and his latest nonfiction book, Surviving Survival, was named by Kirkus as one of the best books of 2012. This new collection of essays shows us the sometimes hair-raising, sometimes heart-wrenching writing that Gonzales has become known for. This a€œcompelling and trustworthy guidea€ (Booklist) takes us from a maximum-security prison to a cancer ward, from a mental institution to the World Trade Center. Among the essays included is a€œMarion Prison, a€ a National Magazine Award finalist, with its intimate view inside the most maximum security prison in America. a€œHouse of Paina€ takes the reader into the life of a brain surgeon at Chicagoa€™s Cook County Hospital, a grim world that few ever see. a€œRites of Spring, a€ another National Magazine Award finalist, follows Gonzales and his wife on their journey through cancer, not once, but twice. Other stories venture above the Arctic Circle, flying deep into the Alaskan wilderness among grizzly bears and trumpeter swans; explore aerobatics in high-performance aircraft; and eulogize Memphis and Miami as American cities that mourn their fates in uniquely different ways.From these collections of essays he went on to write for renowned magazines in addition to publishing several books, including the best selling Deep Survival.
