Dr. Peskin and a literary frame to the shuffle from the mortal coil

Junior Neurology Resident, Sara Manning Peskin, is a gifted writer. Her work has appeared in the Huffington Post and on her blog at Borderwise. She has written previously for the New York Times, and now has published the first of a two-part series on The Symptoms of Dying. Her thoughtful piece, which examines the end of life experience, is graced by adept quotes from classic literature that illustrate each symptom.
