Katy ButlerKnocking on Heaven's Door

Science writer and essayist Katy Butler discusses her family memoir Knocking on Heaven’s Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death. When doctors refused to disable her aged, very ill father’s pace­maker, sentencing him to a protracted and agonizing death, Katy set out to understand why. Her quest had barely begun when her mother faced her own illness, rebelled against her doctors, refused open-heart surgery, and instead met death head-on. Knocking on Heaven’s Door, a revolutionary blend of memoir and investigative reporting, is the fruit of the Butler family’s journey.
