Reflections in a Glass Eye: Essays in the Time of COVID by Kenneth Ring
In these lively and often witty essays, Dr. Kenneth Ring, best known for his pioneering work on near-death experiences, reveals his talents as a Kenny-come-lately humorist and would-be man of letters. Now in his mid-80s, this book shows he has lost none of his verve for writing on a range of subjects as diverse as they are entertaining.
But quite apart from his gift for the droll phrase, the reader will find that Ring also touches on and often goes into depth on serious topics, such as dealing with the COVID pandemic, the right-to-die movement, and the epidemic of loneliness. He also spends some time describing how he became interested in near-death experiences, his explorations with psychedelic drugs, and his one extraordinary and mind-blowing reading from a medium. A lifelong lover of classical music, Reflections in a Glass Eye contains three sparkling and hilarious essays on composers, musicians, and their patrons. The book ends with some touching and moving accounts of Ring’s remarkable love life, which will give the reader a sense of how rich and wondrous has been the life of the author.
