A New York Times best-seller, with over 10 million copies in circulation. An aging amusement park ride-attendant dies trying to save a young girl in the path of a falling cart, and once in heaven, Eddie meets five people who were instrumental in his life.
An attempt to impart some meaning to the unfathomable. By the author of Tuesdays with Morrie (1997). Basis for the 2004 ABC TV movie adaptation, directed by Lloyd Kramer, starring Jon Voight, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Imperioli, and Jeff Daniels, which drew in 18.7 million viewers. "Simply told, sentimental, and profoundly true, this is a contemporary American fable that will be cherished by a vast readership." –Publishers Weekly (starred review)
