The essay is enchanting and nostalgic and mildly sinister. We all know how unreliable eyewitnesses are, but we listen anyway. We believe—we condemn. Tisdale, who was born in , earned a nursing degree in and then began to write in her off-hours: about being a daughter, being a nurse, being a mother.

She published her first book, about medical miracles, in , and a second, on daily life at a nursing home, in When Tisdale was starting out, few writers had shown much interest in this subject. Yet Tisdale has not received much recognition for the path she beat in this particular subgenre.

She has eight books to her name, but no Wikipedia page; there is no long interview with her about the art of nonfiction. But while she is unmistakably a professional writer, her other profession matters, too: care is always a discipline in these pieces, never a romance. Some maintain a professional distance throughout, while others must toggle between restraint and display.

How can you convey the realities of that work without undoing some of it? It will never be a story that could unite them. But each piece is followed by a short, sad-looking note in italics, explaining what Tisdale was thinking when she wrote it or what she wanted it to mean, as though to mark it as merely her tentative, inevitably imperfect version of events. All of this runs counter to the writing itself, at once tender and assured. You can never tell the whole story.

Travel Guide to the End of Life

In addition to being a writer, Tisdale is a Buddhist practitioner and teacher, a nurse, and an end-of-life educator who leads workshops on preparing for death; her depth of experience at the side of the dying is apparent throughout. In these essays, Tisdale tells of the death of her Zen teacher, her mother, her close friend Carol, and others she has known, and asks questions many of us avoid: How do we define death? How do we manage physical pain or grief? Does our dignity depend on our health? This book, Tisdale writes, is meant to help you prepare for your own death and the deaths of those closest to you. At its close, Tisdale even offers four appendixes for those seeking advice on the practicalities of death preparation. At the time, she found the sentence perplexing.
