Ordinary Deaths

Stories from Memory

In Ordinary Deaths, Dr. Samuel LeBaron reminds us of our need for human connection when faced with death and loss. Based on more than thirty years of working with children and adults dying from cancer, LeBaron's memoir contains stories of longing, confusion, love, and humility—often woven together. Sharing recollections from his childhood in rural Alberta and experiences from his career, LeBaron reveals a life of vital connection and intimacy with others. His employment at a morgue during medical school, his early years as a clinical psychologist, and later careers in primary care and hospice in California, all translate into compassion and a deep understanding of death. Writing as he faces his own terminal illness—stage IV lung cancer—LeBaron hopes to help readers find solace and confidence.
