Philip Gould, 1950-2011《我將死去》 When I Die: Lessons from the Death Zone

我知道你想要我為你以後可能碰到的每個難題指提供解答,但我辦不到,至少無法按你希望的方式辦到。我能說的只有這些:只要你始終當你自己,只要你信 賴自己,你的人生就會安然無恙。還有就是:要慷慨、保持慈善心腸,永遠要記得感恩。這就是你需要知道的全部。如果你真的被卡住了,就去請教馬修;如果他幫 不上忙,就去請教宇宙天地。答案就在那,我向你保証,你一定可以找到。
——菲力普.顧爾德《我將死去》.梁永安譯

作者簡介

菲力普‧顧爾德Philip Gould(1950-2011)


  出身廣告界,曾任教倫敦政經學院。一九八○年代被延攬加入工黨,隨後成功將布萊爾送上首相寶座,也是重新打造工黨的重要功臣。

  2008年被診斷罹患食道癌後,他在與癌症搏鬥的過程中,意外地對生命有新的理解。他將人生的最後階段稱為「死亡地帶」,並在其中感受到生命豐沛的能量,看見一個與過去截然不同的自己。

  他將這段時間發生在自己身上的故事,連續發表於《泰晤士報》上,引起英國讀者熱烈迴響。本書就是根據他所發表的文章與日記所完成,並收錄他的妻子 Gail Rebuck(英國蘭登書屋總經理)與兩位女兒的文章。希望透過顧爾德的親身經驗,幫助更多人重新思考死亡、面對死亡,走出對生命的恐懼,勇敢地面對自 己。本書所有版稅,將捐贈癌症慈善組織。

目錄

前言
來自死亡地帶的訊息──基思.布萊克莫爾

騎浪的輝煌    
在生命的港口與港口之間

我的小處之勇    
挺過來了,卻已傷痕累累

一葉小舟    
這次,沒有回頭路了

深不見底的黑暗海洋    
難熬的漫漫長夜

未竟的人生    
接受事實,釋放自己

我的癌症之旅   
找到失落許久的人生目標

黑色長雲背後    
嶄新生命的開始

踏上死亡地帶    
與自己的過去和解

參觀自己的墳墓    
一場小小的勝利

可以改變世界的最後四天──喬治婭.顧爾德

我的爹地──葛麗絲.顧爾德

後記
靈魂離去前,留下的珍貴禮物──蓋兒.瑞巴克

比死亡更大的力量──阿拉斯泰爾.坎貝爾
