Book, Sullivan, Brendan
Date:

Abstract: 
' “The Living Wills” is a story about a split-second decision made 30 years ago and the ripple effects it caused. Can the man who made that decision and the people he affected maneuver their way through a world of baristas and Army veterans, bowling teams and exploding port-a-potties, cartoon pirates and young love, to find the strength to heal before it’s too late?' *
