About this work

Description

"In The Violet Hour, Katie Roiphe takes an unexpected and liberating approach to the most unavoidable of subjects. Drawing on her own ... research and with access to the family, friends and caretakers of her chosen artists, she investigates the final days of six great thinkers and writers as they come to terms with the reality of approaching death." --
