Michael  Schacht - 100 Days
 
 
 
 

 

A very personal farewell story between father and son

"Your father has got 100 days. Don't expect him to live to see the summer." Two sentences that come straight to the point. Wham – there it is, reality. Death is not knocking at the garden gate; it has already kicked in the front door.

In his book, Michael Schacht tries to grasp the expected death of his father; to get closer to him again in the remaining 100 days and to consciously shape and appreciate the time left as a "countdown of life". Very emotionally, he writes of reconciliation and understanding, of fear and hope, of participation and letting go.
