It’s been five years since Jordan Vargas last saw his college friends and 28 years since graduation. Over the years they have reunited in Big Sur to honor a decades-old pact to throw each other living “funerals” during difficult times in their lives to celebrate that life is worth living. But this year, Jordan has a secret that will upend the pact and put life into perspective. This is a beautiful tribute to growing old, life’s difficulties, grief, and the challenges of LIFE. This is not as light-hearted as his previous book, “The Guncle,” but a deeply moving story of love and friendship.
