Description
Johan has sometimes been fortunate but never particularly successful: he lost his job for a breach of professional integrity, and he and his son haven't spoken in eight years. His greatest happiness–his grace–is his competent, confident wife Mai, who loves him unreservedly. Now, with six months to live, and with Mai's help, he intends to die well. But as he broods on the pleasures and regrets of his life, and death slowly envelops him, Johan's resolution begins to waver. Morally intricate and full of sly humor, Grace is a touching and unexpectedly dramatic exploration of the territory between life and death.
